Trafficking in human beings is an important and controversial research field.
Several research proposals in this area are currently under development by colleagues across a wide range of Lancaster departments and centres.
Following the successful research day on 'gender and violence' on 3 June, I am planning a research day on 'researching trafficking: thinking laterally'.
The 'lateral' component is important, so that we are innovative. You do not need to know about 'trafficking' to offer a presentation; just something that is relevant.
I would welcome offers of short presentations, including for example:
The presentations would be 10-15 minutes followed by 5-10 minutes of discussion; so 20 minutes overall.
Please send abstracts of 100 words to myself: S.Walby@Lancaster.ac.uk
If you would like to participate but not speak, please let Pennie Drinkall know: P.Drinkall@Lancaster.ac.uk
