Using Forensics & Biometrics on Human Trafficking

Using Forensics & Biometrics on Human Trafficking


Modern day global realities are that millions of people are immigrants, refugees, enslaved in some form of human trafficking, or otherwise susceptible to conflict or acts of terror.  There is no simplistic solution to address these issues, as matters of nation state policies, rule of law, poverty, conflict, lack of unified global response, and substantial resource needs are major influencing factors.  However, some of these issues can be managed by the use of modern day forensic and biometric methods, and these tools can assist in overall prevention, protection of victims, and identification and prosecution of the offenders.
