UNODC: To Launch Global Intitiative to Fight Human Trafficking

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime is launching a Global Initiative to fight human trafficking.

A series of regional events will be organised throughout the world designed to strengthen anti-trafficking networks and generate coordinated initiatives in preparation of a

Global Conference against Human Trafficking
Vienna, 27-29 November 2007

The Vienna Conference, involving government ministers, international organizations, NGOs and the private sector, will focus on three themes:

· Vulnerability: why does this tragedy still occur?

· Impact: the human faces of victims and the humanitarian costs.

· Action: to end trafficking in persons.

The aim is to generate the political will, a plan of action and the financial resources needed to have a significant world-wide impact on ending human trafficking.

Details of the proposed events will be announced in the coming weeks.
