2020 – Together against Human Trafficking: Human Trafficking in Europe and Its Challenges for Romania (December 10 – 6th edition)

We have the pleasure to invite you to participate in the 6th edition of the online conference Together Against Human Trafficking that is organized by Ramona Strugariu, Member of the European Parliament, in partnership with the Romanian Network of NGOs against Trafficking in Persons (RoTIP), the European Center for Legal Education and Research (ECLER) and Freedom House Romania (FHR), on the 10th of December, celebrating the International Human Rights Day. This year’s edition focuses on „Human Trafficking in Europe and Its Challenges for Romania.

The conference aims to address the main challenges we face in preventing and combating human trafficking or protecting survivors, especially children, underling the need for effective international cooperation and inter-institutional involvement. Eradication of trafficking in human beings, in the actual transnational context, is impossible without strong European cooperation in criminal matters, with an integrated and comprehensive approach. Fighting child trafficking remains one of the main challenges in Europe. According to the current trends identified in the recently published EU Report on Human Trafficking, more and more children become victims of traffickers in Europe and they are subject to all kinds of exploitation.

Conference participants should register, completing the online form by December 5, 2020.
