Nefarious – merchant of souls Wednesday 7 November

Coventry Feminists and Coventry University presents
Nefarious: Merchant of Souls

On Wednesday 7th November Coventry University & Coventry Feminist will host a screening of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, a hard-hitting documentary that exposes the disturbing trends in modern sex slavery. From the very first scene, Nefarious ushers you into the nightmare of sex slavery that hundreds of thousands experience daily. You’ll see where slaves are sold (often in developed, affluent countries), where they work, and where they are confined. You’ll hear first-hand interviews with real victims and traffickers, along with expert analysis from international humanitarian leaders.

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with leading experts in Human Trafficking, after which there will be time for questions from the audience.

Speakers confirmed include:

Glynn Rankin – Former Deputy Head of the UK Human Trafficking Centre. Currently a Member of the EU Group of Experts on Trafficking.

Dr. Simon Massey  – Senior Lecturer, International Studies and Social Science at Coventry University. Founder member of the Research and Education Forum, the United Kingdom Human Trafficking Centre.

Dr. Rino Coluccello  – Senior Lecturer, Department of International Studies and Social Science at

Coventry University. Researched on the human trade between Africa/Middle East and Europe.
