This event will reflect upon the results of two years long efforts undertaken by Payoke Belgium along with the University of Krems and Pécs as well as a number of governments, such as Albania, Austria, Belgium, Hungary, Italy, Luxembourg, Moldova, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Romania, Sweden and UK, EU Agencies such as FRONTEX, EUROPOL, EUROJUST, UN specialised agencies and the NGO community in building new forms of multidisciplinary partnerships and strategies aiming at the protection of victims of trafficking as well as introducing innovative tools for sustainable cooperation between the medical field and law enforcement. In this way the conference will provide a valuable input to the implementation of the 2012 EU Strategy Towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings.
With the support of academia, civil society and a large number of partners Payoke in cooperation with the Centre for European and International Policy Action (CEIPA) is inviting participants to attend a lively discussion amongst governments, media, civil society, policy makers and academia on current issues touching upon human rights, EU security and above all the challenges and constraints of future policy developments following the soon ending Stockholm Programme setting the limits of the EU policies in the field of Home Affairs.
