Seminar on Nordic Best Practices against Trafficking in Human Beings
The Seminar on the Nordic Best Practices against Trafficking in Human Beings will be organized as a part of the Finnish presidency of the Nordic Council of Ministers in Helsinki Congress Paasitorni on November 18th 2021. The seminar is curated by the Ministry of Justice, the Ministry of the Interior, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and the Government Anti-Trafficking Coordinator of Finland.
The seminar brings together the Nordic authorities and actors of the civil society working against trafficking in human beings to share their expertise on practical work against trafficking in human beings. The aim is to exchange best practices and learn from each other. The goal is that the information and expertise shared at the seminar supports the participants in their work on prevention of trafficking in human beings in the Nordics.
Ways to enhance Nordic cooperation in the work against human trafficking will also be discussed in the seminar. The findings and results from the seminar will be utilised in a report on Nordic anti-trafficking cooperation that the Nordic Ministers of Justice agreed on in their meeting in June 2021.
The seminar is not limited to a specific form of human trafficking, a specific group of victims or a specific part of the process, but these topics will be discussed simultaneously. The approach is very practice-oriented. The focus is on practical work, implemented best practices and sharing of ideas, information and contacts for further development of ways of working.
Around 80 participants with expertise on prevention and combatting of trafficking in human beings have been invited to attend the seminar in Helsinki. Broader audience can register to follow the seminar online. Parts I and III of the seminar will be streamed online. Workshop sessions are intended for participants invited to attend the seminar in Helsinki.
