aditus attends OSCE seminar on prevention of human trafficking in the Mediterranean

On 8th February aditus Director Dr. Neil Falzon was in Rome to participate in a seminar organised by the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) entitled Cooperation to Prevent Trafficking in Human Beings in the Mediterranean Region’.  The seminar attracted a range of participants from government entities, international organisations and NGOs, with the aim of exploring ways of enhancing regional cooperation in the struggle to combat human trafficking.

During the seminar, aditus forged new relationships with key partners and identified areas of possible activity.  In particular, aditus is alarmed at the increasing number of reports it is receiving regarding exploitation of domestic workers, and will be exploring ways of liaising with national entities in order to assess whether human trafficking for labour purposes is in fact an alarming reality in Malta.

We would like to thank the OSCE for inviting us to this timely event.
