Human trafficking working groupLaw students from The University of Queensland and the University of Zurich have joined forces for UQ’s flagship human trafficking and migrant smuggling working group.

Seven students from UZH’s Faculty of Law travelled from Switzerland in February to participate in the week-long intensive course, seizing the rare opportunity to collaborate with nine of their UQ counterparts.

Co-course coordinator Professor Andreas Schloenhardt said the course allowed students to compare and contrast laws and policies related to human trafficking and migrant smuggling in Australia and Switzerland.

“Our students examined important international crime and criminal justice issues in both countries, including the nature and limitations of domestic and international criminal law, criminal procedure, law enforcement and judicial measures and their application in real-life cases,” he said.
