Action against Trafficking in Human Beings

Regional workshop for legal practitioners

A regional workshop for legal practitioners involved in providing legal assistance to trafficked persons in South East Europe took place on 10-11 December in Belgrade.

The workshop was organised by the Anti-Trafficking Division of the Council of Europe in co-operation with the Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR). It brought together some 30 legal practitioners from 10 countries: Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Montenegro, "the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia”, Serbia, Republic of Moldova and Slovenia.

The workshop covered a variety of themes, including legal assistance at the stage of identification, during investigation, in court and when claiming compensation and provided a forum for exchanging good practices.
