This free, online event was held on April 29, 2009, and was convened by the Ash Center's Government Innovators Network and the Carr Center's Initiative to Stop Human Trafficking. Please visit the event page to access the slide presentations and resources associated with this webinar.

Event description: Since human trafficking is linked to underground networks of organized crime and corruption, it remains a complex subject to study. As awareness of this crisis continues to rise and new projects and initiatives develop, evolved systems of data collection and information exchange have emerged through coordination and cooperation between researchers and local non-governmental organizations on the front lines.

This online conference focused on best practices to collect data from official sources and provided resources on past and current systems.

This webinar was moderated by Amy Farrell with panelists Duren Banks, Fabrizio Sarrica, Elzbieta Gozdziak, and Neil Weiner.
