Experts call for cooperation to fight scourge of human trafficking

On the occasion of the European Anti-Trafficking Day, the importance of partnerships was called the ‘backbone’ of global efforts to tackle the scourge of human trafficking by the human rights experts from the United Nations, the Council of Europe and the Organization for Co-operation and Security in Europe. It was emphasised that ‘Cooperation between origin, transit and destination countries, but also with regional and international mechanisms, as well as private stakeholders such as multi-national corporations and civil society organizations, is essential for comprehensive responses to trafficking in persons.’
