TRACE workshop: The traffickers

10 June 2015 – Brussels, Belgium

The TRACE project is hosting a workshop, by invitation, to better understand the traffickers.

The TRACE consortium as well as experts from a broad range of fields will gather in Brussels, Belgium to discuss the trafficking industry in direct relation to traffickers. The TRACE Workshop: The Traffickers will bring together lessons learnt from the TRACE Work Package 3 report, which focuses on three key areas:

  • profiling the traffickers to identify their personal characteristics to consider why/how they become traffickers, and how they are situated within criminal networks;
  • identifying people or groups vulnerable to become victims of trafficking;
  • formulating recommendations for law enforcement agencies, policy-makers and civil society organisations that will assist them in intervening in the cycle of human trafficking.

During the validation workshop the TRACE partners will discuss three briefing papers with a selected group of experts. The briefing papers will include the main findings on the three key areas as well as other findings from the research based on which recommendations are drafted. The three papers will be designed for law enforcement agencies, policy-makers and civil society organisations. Experts from each target group will be selected to discuss the briefing paper and the recommendations formulated on the topic. Per target group some 10 to 12 experts will be invited. Each session will last 2.5 hours and will take the form of a focused discussion with the aim of validating the TRACE findings and formulating recommendations.

The workshop is taking place on 10 June 2015 and is free to attend, this is a small workshop by invitation only. Should you wish to be invited please contact j.muraszkiewicz@gmail.com
