Anta is a second year PhD student at University of Hull researching human trafficking from Albania. Her project focuses on the 4Ps Paradigm to look at Prevention, Prosecution, Protection and Partnership (interstate cooperation) and is supervised by Dr Mick Wilkinson and Dr Margarita Zernova.
After graduating from University of Westminster (BA Criminal Justice) and UCL (MSc Crime Science), she briefly worked in Albania as an associate at a consultancy firm and in 2015 she returned to London to work in the voluntary sector. She currently coordinates Hibiscus Initiatives’ women centre in London and supports vulnerable women affected by the criminal justice system and victims of trafficking.
Her major focus is contributing to the fight against human trafficking and has previously been involved with research on these matter through ATLEP (Anti-trafficking Legal Project).
Little-researched calamity of human trafficking from Albania
The research will look at both women and men as victims, with the view to also shed light on the trafficking of young boys and men. The research aims to examine organised criminal activity present in trafficking and differentiate between smuggling and trafficking. The 4Ps Paradigm is used to explore all the key elements of the matter: Prevention, Prosecution, Protection and Partnership among the two countries.
