Expert Seminar on Leveraging Anti-Money Laundering Regimes to Combat Human Trafficking
The OSCE and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) are organizing an expert seminar on leveraging anti-money laundering regimes to help combat human trafficking.
The seminar aims to advance the body of operational knowledge available in financial investigations, in order to identify perpetrators of human trafficking activity and bring them to justice. It will also look at identifying and confiscating the instruments and proceeds of human trafficking activity.
Expected attendees include representatives of the UNODC, Interpol, Europol, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the Egmont Group of Financial Intelligence Units, the Eurasian Group on Combating Money Laundering and Financing of Terrorism, the International Criminal Court, and the Financial Action Task Force, as well as national and non-governmental stakeholders representing police, prosecutors, financial intelligence units, other state structures, and importantly, financial institutions and civil society.
The event is a joint effort of the Office of the Co-ordinator of OSCE Economic and Environmental Activities, the Office of the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings and the OSCE Strategic Police Matters Unit, together with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime’s Global Programme against Money Laundering, Proceeds of Crime and Terrorist Financing, and the Anti-Human Trafficking & Migrant Smuggling Unit.
