NSU to Host Conference on Human Trafficking

NSU’s Institute for Child Health Policy will be hosting the International Child Health Forum on May 6. The topic of the forum will be human trafficking. The event will take place at NSU’s main campus, but broadcast live worldwide from NSU via Webinar and made available through archive.

The United States is very much a “destination country” for human trafficking, and Florida is one of the top 3 “destination states.” Now the third most profitable criminal activity behind drug and arms trafficking, human trafficking is nearly a $10 billion dollar industry.

The forum’s speakers include:
 Ambassador Luis CdeBaca (invited keynote), Senior Advisor to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and director, State Department’s Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking 
 David Batstone, Ph.D., professor of ethics in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies, University of San Francisco
 Michael Bourke, Ph.D., chief psychologist, Behavioral Analysis Unit, U.S. Marshals Service
 Kari D. McInturff R.N., Ph.D., (invited) special agent, FBI
 Nico Sabenorio, director, National Geographic Entertainment
 Jay Silverman, Ph.D., associate professor of Society, Human Development, and Health; and director, Violence Prevention Programs, Department of Society, Human Development, and Health at Harvard School of Public Health
 Robin H. Thompson, J.D., M.A., Robin H. Thompson & Associates
 Florida State University Center for the Advancement of Human Rights

The 2010 International Child Health Forum will serve to foster global collaboration and alliances by providing platforms to encourage continued communications between participants.
