'Evolution or Revolution? The Biomaterials Property Debate and Changing Ethical, Legal, and Social Norms' Presentation
Professor Tsachi Keren-Paz has been invited to present his work in a workshop taking place at the Brocher Institute, 16-17 January 2014 'Evolution or Revolution? The Biomaterials Property Debate and Changing Ethical, Legal, and Social Norms'. The workshop, which brought together experts from law, bioethics, sociology and medicine, examined an increased move towards recognising biomaterials and body parts as subject matter of property. Professor Keren-Paz presented his argument that victims of sex trafficking should be afforded with the possibility to sue clients in the proprietary-based tort of conversion, so that they would be considered, for purposes of the litigation as both objects and subjects.
Professor Keren-Paz has also been invited to the Launch of Report of Inquiry into the Collection, Exchange and Use of Data about Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery Organised by the All Party Parliamentary Group on Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery, January 21, based on his submission of evidence with regard to the need to enhance protection mechanisms to victims, by affording them better civil remedies against traffcikers, clients and the state.
