International Round Table – 17.06.2016 – Beyond Human Trafficking & Modern Day Slavery

It was with renewed pleasure that we organized our International Round Table:


Turning Global Threats and Challenges Into Prospects

The International Round Table was held on 17 June 2016  at the Haus der Europäischen Union – Wipplingerstraße 35, Vienna and organized in the framework of the ‚Regional Implementation Initiative on Preventing & Combating Human Trafficking‘/Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe-IDM, in Cooperation with the EUSDR-EU Strategy for the Danube Region/Vienna Administration and CEIPA-Center for European and International Policy Action.


Renowned experts and researchers had the occasion to confront practitioners and stakeholders with topical analysis and up-to-date findings, and discussed with participants good practice examples with regard to human trafficking and migration, as well as creative solutions and potential ways out of current crisis scenarios.

“The past year saw a massive increase in arrivals in Europe of refugees and other migrants. Experts have reviewed the situation and looked at the implications for human trafficking and exploitation and commented on how they would expect these arrivals to affect the market for trafficked people, the job market in general and for cheap labour in particular as well as the effects on the societies and politics of the European countries concerned and the changes in policy that might be anticipated.”
