Dakar consultation - Human trafficking knows no border, regional and international cooperation is imperative against it
The consultation on “the role of regional and sub-regional mechanisms in international efforts to counter trafficking in persons, especially in women and children” was held in Dakar, Senegal, on 4 and 5 October 2010 and focused on effective ways of tackling trafficking in persons at the regional and sub-regional level through collaborative, innovative and human rights-based approaches.
Convened at the initiative of the Special Rapporteur, the consultation provided the first opportunity for technical experts from nine regional mechanisms representing all five of the world’s continents to come together to share current trends, good practices, challenges and lessons learned with their counterparts from other regions as well as with the Special Rapporteur and United Nations observers.
