Meetings of the National Anti-trafficking Coordinators

Together against human trafficking: National Anti-trafficking Coordinators from South-Eastern Europe meet on a regular basis

As an outcome of the Ministerial Conference held in Brdo Kranj on 20 October 2010, it was decided that meetings of the National Anti-trafficking Coordinators from South-Eastern Europe (SEE) would be organised on a regular basis in the framework of the Brdo process, upon the initiative of the Ministry of the Interior of the Republic of Slovenia. Considering the strong competence of ICMPD in the area of trafficking in human beings and its long-term cooperation with the countries of SEE, ICMPD was entrusted with the responsibility of serving as the Secretariat for this initiative. Since 2011, these meetings have served as forums for sharing good practices, discussing the needs of these countries and identifying areas for potential cooperation in the future. The platform started out as a 'members only club' exclusively for practitioners in the region; however, over the years it has become an interactive dialogue that involves a pan-European network of experts and professionals, thus enabling the creation and exchange of good practices beyond the usual channels.

On the occasion of the 6th EU Anti-Trafficking Day (18 October 2012), the National Anti-trafficking Coordinators agreed upon a joint declaration, which outlines their priorities in combating trafficking in human beings and reflects the synergies between the EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings 20122016 and the progressive efforts made in SEE to tackle the issue. The full text of the joint declaration can be downloaded here.

ICMPD is proud to continue providing its services as the Secretariat for this platform with the aim of exchanging expertise and further developing and improving transnational cooperation.
