The ICPC took part in the Traffik Analysis Hub (TAHub)’s January meeting, a network of 116 organizations across the globe, including the ICPC, whose goal is to contribute to the eradication of human exploitation of all kinds. This meeting included a presentation of new indicators that facilitate the analysis of current tendencies in human trafficking. The American organization Polaris whose mandate is to fight human trafficking also presented a data collection project focused on the U.S.-Mexico agricultural setting. Thanks to the implementation of a hotline, this organization has been able to collect information directly from victims, mostly undocumented Mexican workers, thus widening their impact in the community.
This month, the ICPC welcomed a new employee: Janny Montinat.
Janny, Research Assistant, has a master’s in international law and politics from the Université du Québec à Montréal. Through working on many projects, she has gained experience in multilateral cooperation, digital rights, and personal data protection in Africa. Moreover, she is particularly interested in citizen engagement, public policy analysis, and issues related to human mobility. Welcome to the team!
On February 10, ICPC participated as a panelist in the webinar entitled "Knowledge Systems to Enable Urban Safety" organized by the Alliance of NGOs on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in collaboration with the African Policing Civilian Oversight Forum (APCOF) ainsi que l’organisation Fixed. This webinar addressed opportunities and concerns linked to knowledge building, data, adaptive learning and the link between knowledge, policy and practice. Among the questions addressed were: How to democratize the safe use of data? How to integrate different types of data? How to build the credibility and usability of qualitative data? How to better manage data and knowledge to support good policy?
