When: 8 February 2013, 08:30 - 17:30
Where: Rome, Palazzo Montecitorio, Sala del Mappamondo
Organized by: OSCE Office of the Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings
The principal objective of this seminar is to initiate a dialogue on trafficking in human beings and human rights protection in the context of irregular migration in the Mediterranean region. The seminar takes an innovative approach: while issues related to mixed migration in the region have been dealt within the framework of people smuggling, the seminar will shed light on the often-hidden exploitation of migrants, examine intersecting issues, and highlight the need for the protection of their human rights and the implementation of commitments on human trafficking. The focus will be trafficking for labour exploitation, including domestic servitude.
