Event description: The United States uses a four paradigm approach in combating human trafficking: prevention, protection, prosecution, and partnerships. In addition to the U.S. federal law, the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA), states have also passed their own individual state laws to address human trafficking.

What is currently being done to respond to and combat trafficking in the United States? What is succeeding? What isn't? The panel tackled challenges and lessons learned in combating human trafficking from victim-centered, enforcement, and prevention perspectives.

This webinar was moderated by Jeff Gulati with panelists Kevin Koliner, Sergeant Chris Bray, and Norma Ramos. This event was cosponsored by the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Harvard Kennedy School.
