OSCE-Kosovo Begins Two-Week Campaign against Human Trafficking
Tuesday, November 25, 2008 3:56 PM

Kosovo is a source, transit-point, and destination for human trafficking. Women and children are especially targeted for trafficking for sexual exploitation and forced labor.  On 25 November, the Kosovo office of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) began a two-week campaign against human trafficking. The campaign includes television and outdoor advertising for a free human trafficking reporting hotline, and will close on 10 December with a concert. OSCE-Kosovo’s goal is to encourage people to report incidents of human trafficking.  A secondary goal is to celebrate the UN Declaration of Human Rights’ 60th anniversary: the campaign symbolically starts on the Day against Violence against Women and ends on Human Rights Day.
