CFP: 5th Annual National Conference on Prostitution, Sex Work and Human Trafficking

The University of Toledo and the Second Chance Advisory Board have issued this call for papers for a two-day conference to be held at the University of Toledo on September 18th and 19th, 2008.

The purpose of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners across the country and abroad to lay the groundwork for future research, advocacy, and program development. Social service providers, researchers, advocates, health care providers, criminal justice and other paraprofessionals are invited to come together to become educated on the issue of human trafficking and the needs, risks, and victimization of those involved in commercial sex work.

If you are interested in presenting, please submit an abstract. Abstracts are due June 30th, 2008. If you are interested in attending, registration details can be found on our website (here).

  1. “Social service providers, researchers, advocates, health care providers, criminal justice and other paraprofessionals are invited to come together to become educated on the issue of human trafficking and the needs, risks, and victimization of those involved in commercial sex work.” *end quote*

    What about sex workers? Aren’t sex workers also invited? If this conference is about sex workers, why aren’t listed in the group of people above invited to participate? Is the the same as the annual conference about sex work at the University of Toledo?

  2. This should be called the 5th annual national conference on how to profit off the criminalization of prostitution while calling it human trafficking.
