For the 10th edition (July 16, 2020) we focus on another segment of vulnerable populations who find themselves further at risk due to COVID-19 – victims of human trafficking. Measures to combat COVID-19 such as reduced public health and social services and
diversion of law enforcement have led to further exploitation of victims of human trafficking, including children. For women, this includes increased risk of sexual exploitation.

Produced by The University of Manchester, UK (Professor Duncan Shaw, Dr Jennifer Bealt, and Professor Ruth Boaden) in partnership with the Global Resilient Cities Network (Lina Liakou and Femke Gubbels)
