Globalisation has expanded markets across borders and just as legitimate businesses have expanded their reach so have black markets. This lecture will look at the forms of crime like human trafficking which have spread like wildfire through the same technological advances which have enhanced markets. The lecture will contend that national legal systems are currently proving incapable of dealing adequately with globalised crimes, particularly those which involve the sexual abuse of women and children, but the profitability of such exploitation means international legal responses are resisted.

This talk is part of the Humanitas series.
