European NGOs Collaborate to Combat Trafficking
Friday, May 20, 2005 1:50 PM

The European Women’s Lobby has, in conjunction with the Coalition against Trafficking in Women, started to implement its project “Promoting preventative measures to combat trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation.”

Focusing on the gaps in anti-trafficking programs and policies that fail to focus on gender equality and demand for and links to prostitution, the project will support women’s NGOs and groups working on these issues in twelve countries: Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo/Albania, Latvia, Lithuania, Moldova, Poland, Russia, and Serbian-Montenegro. A consultative seminar will be organized in Brussels on April 22-24 to draft the national action plans with the partners of all countries involved.
