In recognition of the United Nation’s “International Day of Persons with Disabilities” (IDWP) on 3 December, the ASEAN-Australia Counter Trafficking program (ASEAN-ACT) will be exploring the nexus between disability and human trafficking through this webinar.
PWDs often face a host of physical, behavioral, and attitudinal barriers when accessing justice and support, for example a person’s disability may lead criminal justice professionals to overlook them as a credible witness.
It is therefore critical that frontliner responders and other counter trafficking actors are disability-aware and able to accommodate PWDs to ensure they can actively participate in the justice process and all decisions that may involve or impact them.
Join our expert panel who will seek to illuminate the vulnerabilities of persons with disabilities to human trafficking, and explore counter-trafficking measures that promote access, inclusion and agency for victims with a disability.
