Human Trafficking: International Law and Human Rights

Parosha Chandran

On December 1, the Transatlantic Relations Program held an off-the-record dinner and discussion at the Law Society in London with Parosha Chandran, human rights barrister with 1 Pump Court Chambers.

Ms. Chandran addressed persistent challenges she faces in human trafficking cases in the UK and the role that international law can play in assisting human trafficking victims. The dinner served as a capstone to the first day of the Council’s Transatlantic Dialogues on International Law workshop at Chatham House in London. The lively dialogue was graciously hosted by Christian Fleck, managing director of LexisNexis UK & Ireland and moderated by Atlantic Council board director William H. Taft IV.
