time: 15.00 - 18.00

location: Kornhausforum

address: Kornhausplatz 18, 3001 Bern

Foundation of the Swiss Platform against Human Trafficking

 

On the occasion of this year’s European Day against Human Trafficking, four organizations are launching a new nationwide network to combat human trafficking: Plateforme Traite – Swiss platform against Human Trafficking.

 

Its founding members are FIZ Advocacy and support for Migrant Women and Victims of Trafficking, ASTRÉE, Centre Social Protestant (CSP) Genève, and Antenna Mayday Ticino. All four organizations support victims of human trafficking and place the protection and rights of victims of human trafficking at the center of their work.

 

We are pleased to welcome Petya Nestorova, Secretary General of the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA), to the event. She will present the importance of the human rights-based and victim-centred approach in the fight against trafficking in human beings and the role of NGOs in this field. Afterwards, the four counselling centres will talk about the experiences and difficulties encountered by victims of human trafficking here in Switzerland, and will present the Platform’s main lines of work as well as the demands addressed to political decision-makers.

 

The event will be held in German and French. There will be a translation for both languages. If necessary, we can also provide translation for Italian (please contact us beforehand: info@plateforme-traite.ch).

 

It will last from 3 to 5 pm with a following apéro.

 

 

Due to the current pandemic situation, registration is mandatory.

 

We look forward to setting together with you an important example in the fight against human trafficking – throughout Switzerland and internationally!
