‘Why Definitions Matter’: The latest UN-ACT Blog

We have published our latest blog, ‘Why Definitions Matter’.

In this piece, Sebastian Boll, UN-ACT’s Regional Research Analyst, reflects upon a recent ILO-moderated online discussion on whether clear definitions on human trafficking and related concepts matter, and uses a court case in Cambodia as reported in the Bangkok Post to give an example for why this is the case.

What do you think about the blog? Can you think of other examples in this context where imprecise definitions had negative repercussions?

We would be happy to hear from you! You can comment directly in response to our blog!…
