Justice and Care are a registered non-profit in the United States. We have strategic plans to develop on the groundwork there, including through systemic change.
In early 2021, Justice and Care and the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University launched a two-year Global Experts Consortium on Prosecuting Human Trafficking to increase human trafficking investigation and prosecution efforts in the United States and around the world.
“An international collaboration of the key figures in successful trafficking and exploitation prosecutions will help justice sector stakeholders and other policymakers move forward with greater knowledge and tools to ensure perpetrators of this heinous offence are brought to justice.” – Caroline Haughey, OBE QC
As the international community marked the twentieth anniversary of organised anti-trafficking efforts, the McCain Institute’s launched and leads this Consortium on Prosecuting Human Trafficking. The small group of invited representatives convenes regularly for action-oriented conversations to discuss current trends and challenges, share recent successes and failures, as well as exchange and review best available evidence for moving successfully through the investigation, prosecution, conviction lifecycle.
The objectives of the Prosecutors Consortium are to:
- Align best available evidence for prosecuting human trafficking cases with a victim-centred approach
- Develop specific, targeted policy recommendations
- Build a vibrant global practitioners’ network of experienced human trafficking prosecutors
