Human Trafficking in the Fishing Industry II: Reporting by DOJ’s Taskforce on Human Trafficking

Tuesday, March 9, 2021 noon to 1 p.m.

The problem of forced labor on fishing vessels has emerged as an especially difficult challenge to policymakers, enforcement officials, and worker advocates. This form of human trafficking is particularly challenging to eradicate due in part to the physical isolation of those workplaces and the complex legal and jurisdictional issues on the high seas. Hear from Karen Stauss, Senior Policy Counsel with the Human Trafficking Prosecution Unit at the Department of Justice about the government’s commitment to confronting the problem of forced labor on vishing vessels. Karen will highlight findings from a new report issued by the Task Force on Human Trafficking in Fishing in International Waters.
