Juliana Semione, Communities & Society Research Associate, PhD Candidate, The Rights Lab presents. Every day, anti-trafficking efforts around the world work to support victims toward “freedom.” Anti-trafficking advocates do their daily work in the name of “freedom.” But what does this mean—what is freedom? This research explores this question with law enforcement professionals, survivors, and victim service providers. I will share definitions of freedom from the UK and U.S. These definitions can allow anti-trafficking stakeholders to better understand the substance of freedom; help to break down preconceptions among stakeholder groups; and facilitate a shift in legislation and advocacy from being against slavery to being for freedom.
