Ensuring Human Rights Protection in Countries of Destination: Breaking the Cycle of Trafficking

Conference Report Helsinki, 23-24 September 2004

Ann Jordan: Participant and contributor

Every year, international organizations, governments, and NGOs make numerous efforts to combat trafficking in human beings, and vast funding is poured into anti-trafficking activities. During recent years, the international legal framework has continued to develop. More OSCE participating States have ratified the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, as well as its Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children. At the European Union level, the Council Directive on Short-Term Residence Permits was adopted in 2004. The OSCE adopted its Action Plan to Combat Trafficking in Human Beings in 2003, while the Council of Europe drafted the European Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings.
