February 7: Modern Slavery and Human Trafficking | Christopher Carey (Portland State University)
Almost every nation has enacted laws criminalizing human trafficking, and international organizations, governments, and NGOs sponsor a large variety of projects to curb trafficking and slavery. Billions of dollars have been allocated to these efforts. What is the international community doing to combat slavery and trafficking? What are the experiences like for those being trafficked?
All Great Decisions events take place Fridays at 12 p.m. at Portland State University, Academic and Student Recreation Center, Room 001, 1800 SW 6th Avenue, Portland, Oregon 97201.
If you’re unable to attend one of the talks, Great Decisions is live-streamed and archived on WorldOregon’s YouTube channel
This event is free for PSU students and faculty and for those auditing through The Senior Adult Learning Center.
Complimentary coffee for Great Decisions is made possible through the generous donation of Caffe Umbria
