On 18 October the European Commission is organising a one-day event in Brussels 2007 to highlight the EU anti-trafficking day.
According to the draft agenda, there will be no differentiation between diffferent forms of trafficking, and no space is provided for addressing specific gendered aspects of trafficking.
The one-day meeting is expected to adopt a set of recommendations on assistance and identification of VOTs. However, only a limited number of NGOs with experience in this field have been invited. NGO speakers are from Netherlands (La Strada), Netherlands (Women’s human rights centre), Belgium (Payoke), and Italy (On the Road).
