The talk by Rvd. Dr. Carrie Pemberton Ford, who has been working within the subject for 15 years, takes place on Tuesday January 21.
In 2008 she founded the Cambridge Centre for Applied Research in Human Trafficking.
She will discuss the efforts being made by agencies and governments to respond to the challenges of human trafficking and modern slavery.
The group say: "Human Trafficking is a global human rights violation and a terrifyingly lucrative criminal activity.
