LJMU’s Dr Daniel Silverstone, Director of the School of Justice Studies, has delivered a series of national media interviews related to his research on human trafficking.

After the tragic news broke that the 39 victims found inside a lorry container in Essex were Vietnamese, Dr Silverstone spoke to Radio 4’s Today programme about organised crime and the different types of human trafficking. (Listen from 2:43:10 to hear Dan’s interview. The full feature starts at 2:38:55).

He also produced a feature for The Conversation and gave an interview to The Times about people smugglers based in China acting as black-market “travel agents” for illegal migrants who enter the sex trade, work in drug cultivation or end up in forced labour in the UK.
