Conference on the occasion of 6th EU Anti-Trafficking Day

To mark the 6th EU Anti-Trafficking Day, the Cyprus EU Presidency and the European Commission are organising a high level conference in Brussels on 18 October 2012.

The conference 'Working together towards the eradication of trafficking in human beings: The Way Forward' will focus on the recently adopted EU Strategy on Trafficking in Human Beings. It aims to serve as a forum for exchange of views on shaping future actions to strengthen cooperation, victim protection and assistance, prevention and prosecution in the field of trafficking in human beings.

For this event, the Commission will provide travel arrangements and accommodation for three representatives of each EU country (one representative from a government organisation and two representatives from NGOs, to be selected by government authorities). NGOs are advised to contact directly the relevant authority in their respective country.

Other interested parties, including civil society representatives, are welcome to this open conference – please note that the Commission will not be reimbursing costs. You can register by returning the registration form before 4th October to mail address HOME-ANTITRAFFICKING@ec.europa.eu .  Your participation will be confirmed in the week of 8 October.
