The Nordic Baltic network for support and assistance to women victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation held an international conference in Vilnius on 5 October 2007.

The Nordic Baltic network for support and assistance to women victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation, created in framework of the EWL Nordic Baltic Project, held an international conference: “Strengthened cooperation against trafficking in women – from national to regional strategies” in Vilnius on 5 October. The conference hosted a larger group of stakeholders from the Nordic Baltic region and beyond – focusing on victim-centred anti-trafficking approaches and strategies to combat trafficking in women for sexual exploitation. The national teams presented their work to the conference, and a panel with representatives from Council of Europe, OSCE, the POPPY Project, the Croatian Women’s Network and the Swedish Ambassador against Trafficking in Human Beings, spoke on anti-trafficking responses, regional cooperation models and victim-centred approaches.
