Four UCLan Cyprus researchers will be collaborating with the British Institute of International and Comparative Law and acting as the country experts for Cyprus to conduct a case-study in the framework of the international ‘Determinants of Anti-Trafficking Efforts’ project.
The project aims to identify the factors that either contribute to or hinder anti-trafficking efforts internationally and does this through, inter alia, desk research, a set of expert interviews, a first of its kind global survey, and a series of case studies. The project is original in that it moves away from a single country focus and examines instead, 14 case studies, one of which is Cyprus.
Dr Nasia Hadjigeorgiou (Assistant Professor in Transitional Justice and Human Rights) is leading the UCLan Cyprus team, which also consists of Dr Demetra Loizou (Lecturer in International Law and Legal Skills), Ms Andrea Manoli (PhD student at UCLan) and Ms Fezile Osum (PhD student at UCLan).
