Come to an interactive brown bag lunch lecture on “Human Trafficking, Prostitution, Pandemics and Politics: Do Anti-Trafficking Policies Hurt the Most Vulnerable?” this Wednesday afternoon at American University Washington College of Law.
Joanna Busza, senior lecturer in sexual and reproductive health at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, will discuss her public health research conducted among Vietnamese sex workers in Phnom Penh, Cambodia and among Eastern European prostitutes working in London to demonstrate how attempts to reduce exploitation can result in increased human rights abuse and vulnerability to health risks such as HIV.

Where: 4801 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, American University Washington College of Law, JD Student Lounge
