Can Blockchain Help to Prevent Human Trafficking?: The Unconference
The Blockchain and Human Trafficking Unconference will bring together technologists, academics, non-profit experts and other professionals to tackle the critical question, "Can Blockchain Help Prevent Human Trafficking?" This unconference format will encourage participation and brainstorming by all attendees, and include a centralized schedule and agenda maintained by the organizers. The primary goal of this unconference is to explore ways in which blockchain technology might be used to help prevent human trafficking. NGO's and government agencies often find themselves a step behind human traffickers who run their very lucrative criminal "businesses" in part due to their lack of agility in using technology to thwart them. For far too long, human traffickers have used technology in more nimble ways than those of us on the anti-trafficking side, including law enforcement, government agencies and NGOs. Our organization strongly believes that we can and should use every technology available - including Blockchain - to thwart human traffickers and actually disrupt their criminal activity. This event will bring together experts in the field familiar with the realities of trafficking on the ground, with technologists and others to contribute and combine their knowledge to make a serious attempt at finding ways that blockchain might be used in the global efforts to combat and prevent human trafficking.
