date: March 13, 2019
location: Villa Sassetti

Human trafficking is “a new form of modern slavery” according to the United Nations. The trafficking of women forced into sexual labor is a significant component of this phenomenon. NYU Florence’s Debora Spini will moderate a discussion with Silvia Scarpa, an expert on contemporary slavery and human trafficking, and Pietro Vené, a social worker who oversees a shelter for minor victims of human trafficking in Florence, to shed light on this problem in the Italian context.
