Research in Kyiv
During my visit to Kyiv I also did a number of interviews for my research with non-governmental organizations and attended a workshop sponsored by La Strada, one of the big counter trafficking organizations in Ukraine. The workshop was on the practical aspects of working with the changes to the new Ukrainian law on human trafficking. It was conducted in Ukrainian and let me just say that all those people who tell you Ukrainian and Russian are practically the same language are WRONG! I probably understood 50 percent of the workshop but it was still a good chance to learn about how the changes to the law would affect service providers in Ukraine and network with people. Let's just say after the workshop I am very excited to start my Ukrainian lessons next semester. Here are some pictures from the workshop.
