Combatting Human Trafficking in Migration Context: Best Practices, Challenges and the Global Compact for Migration
27 Sep 2019 -  Human trafficking is global phenomenon and a crime with serious consequences for those victimized. Across the world, an increasing number of women, men, and children embark on an uncertain, and sometimes perilous, journey in search of a better life for themselves and their families. Many of them risk experiencing exploitation, abuse and violence at all stages of the migration process, in their countries of origin, during transit, or at their final destination. The risks undertaken by people on the move increase their vulnerability to experiencing different forms of human trafficking.
The overall objective of this event is to draw attention to the issue of human trafficking in the context of migration and identify successful practices that countries have implemented to combat it.
The event will look at the experiences of the Philippines, as a country of origin of migrants and of individuals victimized by human traffickers, and Bahrain, as a country of destination of migrants and of individuals subjected to human trafficking in order to identify the challenges faced by both countries and provide recommendations for further cooperation in light of the adoption by the UN General Assembly of the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration.
The event will also feature best practices, experiences and challenges of Japan and Nigeria, as well as perspectives of UNODC and IOM in addressing the issue of human trafficking of migrants.
Co-organizers: Permanent Missions of the Kingdom of Bahrain, Federal Republic of Nigeria and the Republic of the Philippines. Co-sponsors: UNODC and IOM
