Meetings of National Co-ordinators
Meeting of National Anti-Trafficking Co-ordinators
21-22 June 2016
National Anti-Trafficking Co-ordinators from the 46 states parties to the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings met at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg to discuss ways to strengthen national co-ordination and international co-operation in the fight against trafficking in human beings. Participants in the meeting identified different approaches to co-ordination at national and local level, and analysed their implications for policy development and implementation. Particular attention was paid to multi-agency collaboration in the identification of victims of trafficking and the protection of their rights. The discussions also focused on how to increase co-operation and co-ordination between countries of origin, transit and destination when identifying trafficked persons and referring them to assistance.
