3rd Annual International Symposium on Preventing Human Trafficking: Integrating the European Knowledge

The Public Policy Exchange will be hosting an annual symposium on Human Trafficking on 24 November in the Silken Hotel in Brussels. It provides a platform to bring together case studies and best practices with important contributions from EU policymakers, major international organizations and NGOs from across Europe.

The disturbing phenomenon of Human Trafficking requires a multidisciplinary and comparative approach at EU and national level, and a renewed political will to combat this problem. With a new Directive on trafficking in human being adopted by the European Council in March this year, the 3rd Annual International Symposium on Preventing Human Trafficking offers a timely opportunity for local, regional and national authorities to gather comparative knowledge, discuss the latest challenges and share examples of cross-border best practices. In order to encourage greater political will, facilitate policy discussion and explore comprehensive and integrated solutions to fighting the ‘hidden’ crime of human trafficking, Public Policy Exchange is proud to host this annual Symposium and welcomes the participation of all key partners, responsible authorities and stakeholders. The Symposium will support the exchange of ideas and encourage delegates to engage in thought-provoking, topical debate.

The key speakers will represent European Commission, European Council, UNHCR, IOM and others. The main panel sessions will focus on the following topics: Exchanging Best Practices and Raising Awareness of Current and Future Challenges; Identifying New Types of Interventions for Preventing Human Trafficking in Europe; Bottom-Up Approaches in Tackling Human Trafficking.
