Amnesty Ely Free Talk on People Smuggling & Trafficking

Amnesty International Ely City Group is running a series of three free talks at the Babylon Gallery from this month through to March.

The first, “Migrant smuggling into Europe: Trends, Experiences and Moral Dilemmas”, will explore the relationship between people smuggling and people trafficking and examine the moral dilemmas of policing this type of crime.

Based on real-life interviews, the talk will be given by two leading Cambridge University experts: Professor Loraine Gelsthorpe, co-founder of the Cambridge Migration Research Network, and her colleague at the University of Cambridge Institute of Criminology, Dr Paolo Campana, who is investigating people smuggling, the emergence of Mafia-like organisations and their impact on local communities.

The talk will be held at Ely’s Babylon Gallery on Tuesday 31st January, 7pm for 7.15pm.  It is free to attend, although donations for Amnesty’s human rights work will be welcomed, and refreshments will be available.
