Call for Papers: Ensure Justice 2015


The deadline for abstract submission via email is November 20, 2014.

The Global Center for Women and Justice’s annual Ensure Justice conference is releasing a call for research papers. The conference focuses on issues of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children. This year’s theme will follow the Federal Five-Year Anti-Trafficking Strategic Plan structure of Coordination, Collaboration, Capacity and the addition of Compassion, a reflection of the role the faith-based community plays in combating human trafficking.

We are not seeking workshop speakers, but academic presentations including: facts, knowledge, ideas, theories, on-the-ground approaches, methods, program evaluations, research agendas, and research needs. The presentations will be 15 minutes with 15 minutes for discussion, totaling no more than 30 minutes. The organizing committee is willing to consider other formats, such as panel presentations.

We invite abstract submissions of up to 300 words from students and professionals with academic or professional research. Please fill out our submission form and include a brief resume or CV. Deadline to submit an abstract is November 20,2014 to


The committee will expect a commitment to attend by at least one of the accepted presenters, with a non-refundable deposit of $50, by January 15, 2015, for presenters to remain on the program. The deposit may be paid on the Ensure Justice Registration webpage. For papers selected, the remainder of the registration fee will be complementary.

Sending an abstract and/or any other materials will constitute a release of copyright, and allow the materials they present (in written, video, audio, or graphic form) to be made available on the conference website after the conference. No paper proceedings will be published, but the presented materials will be available on the conference website for the indefinite future.

The deadline for submission of materials, other than the abstract and printed materials, to be emailed to GCWJ  is January 15, 2015. Conference presenters may include a formal paper, PowerPoint slides, film, or anything arising from their presented work. If nothing is submitted, their abstract will be placed on the web site as directed by the staff.

If you have questions about presentations or would like to begin the submission process, please contact
