European Resource Center

The 18th High-level Alliance against Trafficking in Persons conference “Everyone Has a Role: How to Make a Difference Together” is taking on 23–24 April 2018, Hofburg, Vienna.

Mrs Amela Efendic, Expert Advisor of IFS-EMMAUS, which is a part of Emmaus International and Emmaus Europe organisation, and CEO of the European Resource Center for Prevention of Trafficking ih Human Beings and Other Forms of Exploitation, participates as a panelist at the conference with the delegation from Bosnia and Herzegovina, led by BiH State Coordinator for the Prevention of Trafficking in Human Beings.

The focus of this year’s high-level conference is to promote the importance of inclusive partnerships to further enhance the coherence of anti-trafficking efforts and strengthen co-operation at the local, national, regional and international level.

The conference will examine existing, more traditional anti-trafficking partnerships, along with the benefits of innovative co-operation modalities which often remain ‘invisible’ in formalized multi-disciplinary frameworks. A special emphasis will also be placed on new actors whose engagement would bring added value to anti-trafficking responses. LIVE STREAM
