Improving international co-operation in tackling transnational trafficking in human beings: regional expert workshop in Sofia

On 8-9 November 2017, the Council of Europe organised a regional expert workshop on enhancing international legal co-operation in the fight against trafficking in human beings and the protection of victims’ rights. The aim of the workshop was to promote better co-operation between Parties to the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings in the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking cases, while respecting the human rights of victims of trafficking, in accordance with the provisions of the Convention.

The workshop brought together in Sofia, Bulgaria, some 50 experts from countries in Southern and Eastern Europe as well as international organisations involved in combating human trafficking. Participants discussed existing challenges and studied the use of different tools for facilitating the co-ordination of investigations and prosecutions of cross-border cases of trafficking in human being, including Joint Investigation Teams (JITs).
