Event details
Details Human trafficking is one of the more complex and contentious social and political issues on today's global agendas. Both in the United States and abroad, its ethical challenges have engaged a wide range of faith actors, who bring energy, global networks, resources, and moral fervor to the movement. Cambodia, as a global hotspot for trafficking, offers a remarkable instance of how these issues present themselves in practice and how they are evolving over time. Active debates center on issues at the nexus of faith and development: global and national priorities, coordination of interventions and evaluation of results, the roles of evangelizing and proselytizing in a development or humanitarian context, and issues of gender justice. All are in play in Cambodia.

Mark Lagon, Susan Martin, Jeremy Floyd, and Katherine Marshall will explore current efforts and initiatives in Cambodia and set them within the broader, global context of debates and partnerships around poverty, equity, and human trafficking, including the role of faith communities. The WFDD report on faith and trafficking in Cambodia and a related policy brief will provide a context for the discussion.
