The first webinar of the 2018 series will introduce the topic “The Human Trafficking – Organized Crime Nexus: Intersections, Vulnerabilities, and Analysis for the Private Sector,” and outline the webinar series for the coming months.

Transnational organized crime groups make a thorough use of private sector networks to commit, harbour, launder and facilitate criminal activities. Human trafficking is a significant issue in consumer markets and very often aligned with other forms of organized crime, such as money laundering, environmental crime, smuggling of counterfeit goods and drug trafficking. Additionally, issues like migration and associations with terrorist organizations also play a role within the human trafficking nexus.

This webinar series will explore how human trafficking can intersect with these other forms of organized crime and provide promising practices, strategies, and responses to alleviate further vulnerabilities for the private sector.
