Workshop discusses human trafficking challenges

FRA took part in a workshop on ‘Human Trafficking: Challenges and Opportunities for the 21st Century’, organised by the International Institute for the Sociology of Law in Spain.

The workshop, which took place in Onati on 26-27 June, brought together key policy makers, lawyers, academics and practitioners to address the issues of human trafficking in light of recent policy and legislative developments in the EU. The workshop sought to put forward recommendations in key areas that, globally, have caused concern even though they may not be priorities for EU member states. FRA presented its recent handbook on ‘Guardianship for children deprived of parental care’, focusing on the specific needs of child victims of trafficking, and its work on severe forms of labour exploitation.
