Conference: Psychological Health Impact of Trafficking in Human Beings

Tilburg University & University of Barcelona
Presentation of first results
Cinecitta Tilburg

Tilburg University warmly invites you to the intermediate conference of the European Research Project 'Psychological  Health Impact of THB for sexual exploitation on female  victims (PHIT)'. This conference provides an update of existing knowledge from a multidisciplinary perspective and the first results of the analyses.  

Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) for sexual exploitation is a serious violation of human rights and a  clear form of violence against women. Victimization processes associated with Trafficking in  Human Beings have serious consequences on these women’s lives and health (physical, sexual and  psychological health). In order to find an adequate approach to allow the recovery of survivors it is necessary to study these consequences in depth. Furthermore we aim to understand how the psychological well-being of victims is affected by interventions and interactions with public and private stakeholders.

Conference program
Due to the multidisciplinary approach we have invited a diverse group of experts to present their experience and ideas from a perspective of law enforcement and psychological assistance. An updated program will be shared via e-mail after registration.
