Using modern technology to combat modern slavery

CCLP research director Mark Latonero was quoted last month inĀ MediaGlobal News, an independent media organization based in the United Nations.

The entry titled, “Using modern technology to combat modern slavery,” highlights Latanero’s research in the field of Human Trafficking Online.

The following quote appears at the end of the original blog entry:

“Thanks to social networks potential victims can better understand the dynamics of human trafficking, recognize and avoid it. Also, a real-time reporting of such crimes can induce real-time responses by authorities. Trafficking detection can also be managed through social networking sites like Twitter as shown in Mark Latonero’s study “Human Trafficking Online.”
