John Trajer is a Research Fellow in Anti-Trafficking Law and Policy at the British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL). In this role, he is working on a project that assesses the impact of access to legal advice on people with lived experiences of modern slavery. John holds a BA from the University of Oxford, a joint MA from the universities of Göttingen and Groningen, and an LLM from the European University Institute. He has also acquired professional experience in the field of anti-trafficking and refugee law at various NGOs and international organisations, including the AIRE Centre (Advice on Individual Rights in Europe), the Hungarian Helsinki Committee, and the Council of Europe.
Alongside his work at BIICL, John is in the process of finalising his doctoral thesis at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. This project analyses the rights of trafficked persons in the context of immigration enforcement, with particular emphasis on recent legislative and judicial developments in the United Kingdom. Over the course of his PhD, John has been a visiting fellow at the Amsterdam Centre for Migration and Refugee Law (Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam), the Dickson Poon School of Law (King's College London), and the University of Michigan Law School.
