CAWN conference on images of exploited and trafficked women, London
Date: 27th April 2012
Address: Friends House, George Fox Room, 173-177 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BJ
The Central American Women’s Network (CAWN) and Frauensolidaritäet would like to invite you to the upcoming conference, “Images of exploited and trafficked women: The role of the media and campaigning in women's empowerment”
While there has been growing awareness over the last decade as to the urgency to address trafficking for sexual exploitation and exploitation within the sex-industry, advocates have not always agreed on the most appropriate approach to tackle it. Debates are played out and amplified by media stories, backing the prevalence of dominating discourses.
The conference intends to be a forum for the effectiveness of such approaches to be discussed and for their complementarities to be explored. It will bring together speakers from the policy, academic and NGO fields to examine current efforts to counteract trafficking and exploitation of migrant sex workers. Plenary discussions will be followed by three workshops which you may sign up for in advance.
The event has been put together by CAWN and Frauensolidaritäet as part of our current project, “Women’s rights, social inclusion and the media” funded by the European Commission.
If you would like to attend, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org by 18th April as there are limited places. Lunch and drinks will be provided. CAWN tel: +44 (0) 20 7561 4828
