In collaboration with Boston College and the Dartmouth College Gender Research Institute in the U.S.A., an international seminar on Trafficking of Women and Sexual Violence will be held on 17, 18 and 19 June at the Deusto Library (CRAI). The event is set within the Aristos Campus Mundus framework.  This seminar aims to address the reality of illegal human trafficking, particularly of women and girls, and their sexual exploitation. The subject will be approached from a transnational and interdisciplinary perspective.

Experts and activists from the United States and Spain will meet in Bilbao with students from the three universities to prompt debate and raise awareness of this global issue. They intend to analyse the multiple factors that contribute to making this one of the most abominable types of human exploitation and one of the most lucrative illegal activities of the twenty first century.

From the academic point of view, this seminar provides an innovative approach to the interdisciplinary study of a subject related to respect for human rights, social justice and equality. It does so by gathering students from three different universities, with diverse academic backgrounds. They will meet at Deusto to compare and contrast the different scopes from which this problem can be addressed and cannot easily be separated from: the legal aspect and intervention policies, the media, its manifestations and personal narratives, funding and the actors at ground level.

The event is promoted and funded by the three universities mentioned and is set within the Aristos Campus Mundus, Campus of International Excellence project. We hope that this colloborative transnational learning experience will lay the foundation for future cooperation that helps to prepare students who are true agents of social change.

The activities will be held in English and the morning session on Thursday, the 18th and Friday, the 19th will be open to the University community and the general public.
