The Weaponisation of Cultural Beliefs in Human Trafficking: The Ensnaring Power of Witchcraft
Date: Tuesday 13th February 2024
Time: 19:00 – 20:15 (Ireland)
Speaker: David Lohan, author of At Freedom’s Crossroads: Making Sense of Human Trafficking.
All are welcome to join and explore the intersection of cultural beliefs and human trafficking, learning how traditional oath-taking rituals and the influence of juju (magic) become insidious ‘control mechanisms,’ ensnaring victims in bondage and leaving them at the mercy of traffickers.
