Posted on 07/01/2019
On 5th December 2018, the Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU) brought together senior university leaders, academics, and international scholarship students to explore how higher education can help build a better world in collaboration with King’s. HRH The Duchess of Sussex made a surprise appearance at the event, taking part in discussions.
Professor Satvinder Juss chaired a private event on the subject of human trafficking as part of the event. Guests considered how universities can address critical issues through research and policy formulation, how this work contributes to the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals, and how the ACU support this work.
Speaking abouthis involvement, Professor Juss explained that the role of universities in tackling international human trafficking is now a more prominent area of academic focus. 'It is a truly interdisciplinary issue,' he said, 'But it is a global challenge and responsibility for tackling it lies with civil society. It is hoped that HRH The Duchess of Sussex’s involvement in the championing of higher education causes will be instrumental in raising the profile of these issues globally.'
