Nordic seminar on anti-trafficking action

The Nordic countries have engaged for decades in work to combat human trafficking. The countries have created a range of successful operational models which have enabled various actors, ranging from government and regional authorities to private and civil society actors, to strengthen beneficial competence in the various sectors of anti-trafficking.

During Finland’s Presidency, a seminar will be organised in Helsinki in November 2021 to bring together authorities and other bodies, working with human trafficking issues in the Nordic countries, to share their knowledge and ideas of practical anti-trafficking work. The aim is to share the best practices to enable actors in each country to learn from one another. The focus on measures implemented in practice, and communicating them to others to use, will provide the participants with ideas, information and contacts for the further development of their operating methods. The goal is that the information and competence shared in the seminar will help participants in their work on strengthening anti-trafficking mechanisms in the Nordic countries.

In the country-specific presentations, the participants will highlight their strengths in anti-trafficking work and lessons learned at work. Each country will present one or two tried and tested operating models.

The seminar will be streamed online.

Further information on the event will be available at a later date.
