To Human Rights Watch: your position on sex trafficking is disappointing, misleading and does not protect victims

Call for papers: Dignity Journal

You are invited to contribute to the open access, peer-reviewed journal called Dignity: A Journal on Sexual Exploitation and Violence.

The journal is an interdisciplinary forum for research, discussion, and analysis on how sexual exploitation, violence, and slavery harm the dignity and health of individuals and the integrity and security of communities. It is a forum for practitioners, advocates and service providers to report on interventions, movements and progress on healing individuals, rehabilitating communities and transforming states into actors where justice serves all people.

For more information on how you can contribute, please visit Dignity Journal's website.
