Please find attached the first issue of the GLOBAL ANTI-TRAFFICKING
INFOCALENDAR created by WomenAid International. Founded in 1988, WomenAid
International is a humanitarian aid and development agency that promotes
all rights for all people in all countries. WomenAid has been implementing
anti-trafficking 'prevention and protection' projects in the Caucasus
region where the agency has worked since 1993.
The GLOBAL ANTI-TRAFFICKING INFOCALENDAR aims to assist all involved in
counter-trafficking efforts by facilitating the dissemination of
information on global activities to combat the trafficking of human
beings. We hope you will find this information service helpful.
Trafficking of human beings is the second largest and fastest growing
criminal activity in the world and efforts to combat this require
effective communication and information exchange. The United Nations and
the European Parliament have repeatedly stressed the indispensable role of
non-governmental organisations and individuals in combating violence in
all its forms and encouraged their increased involvement.
This service is an integral activity of the WomenAid International
Anti-Trafficking programme, which includes the UK Anti-Trafficking Network
(UKAT). WomenAid International recently organised the first national
anti-trafficking conference 'Combating Global Trafficking: Approaches,
Strategies and Interventions', which took place on 11 March in London.
Speakers included Radhika Coomaraswamy, UN Special Rapporteur on Violence
Against Women, Isabella Menachini, Italy, William Hughes, Director General
National Crime Squad, UK, Lord Alton and Peter Brennan, ILO. Conference
Papers are forthcoming. Request from: [EMAIL PROTECTED] and online later
at www.womenaid.org/ukat On 13th March Lord Alton introduced a debate on
trafficking of women and children in the House of Lords. Full debate
