Title

Disrupting Human Trafficking: A Role for Financial Institutions?

15 March 2017, 14:00
RUSI Whitehall
This event will explore the ways in which financial institutions can bring additional capacity to the response of law enforcement to human trafficking

The Centre for Financial Crime & Security Studies at RUSI would like to invite you to join a panel discussion to consider the role financial institutions can play in assisting with the identification and disruption of human trafficking.

At a time when governments around the world, led by the UK, are championing the role public/private partnerships can play in achieving a step-change in the disruption of financial crime, this discussion will focus on the pernicious crime of human trafficking. The subject of a new Whitehall Report from RUSI's Centre for Financial Crime & Security Studies, this panel will explore the ways in which financial institutions are seeking to bring additional capacity to the response of law enforcement to this crime through their considerable transaction monitoring and investigations capability.  It will also highlight how the involvement of NGOs can assist both financial institutions and law enforcement in developing more effective identification methods and disruption responses.

This event will feature a keynote address from a senior cabinet member followed by a panel discussion and audience Q&A chaired by Dr Karin von Hippel, RUSI Director General, including:

  • Kevin Hyland: UK Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner
  • Duncan Jepson: Founder, Liberty Asia
  • Tom Keatinge: Director, RUSI’s Centre for Financial Crime & Security Studies
  • Nick Lewis: Group Head, Financial Crime Investigations and Intelligence, Standard Chartered Bank
  • Jennifer Shasky Calvery: Global Head, Financial Crime Threat Mitigation, HSBC
  • Rob Wainwright: Director, Europol

The event is open to all. To attend this event, please register online using the "Register Now" button above. If you have any queries please contact Lieke Bos at liekeb@rusi.org.

The event will begin at 1400, and is expected to finish by 1600.
