FIGHTING AGAINST TRAFFICKING IN HUMAN BEINGS: A JOINT EFFORT

 

Trafficking in human beings occurs under our very noses throughout the European Union. It is a criminal activity of huge complexity. It is also one of which legislators, law-enforcement agencies and citizens across the EU are becoming increasingly aware. Efforts made to address the matter of human trafficking to date have fallen short. The Catholic Church is an active partner in the fight against this distressing phenomenon. It is resolved to assist victims of trafficking as well as to work with public authorities and private actors to reduce and eventually outlaw this assault on human dignity.

 

We wish to invite you to an evening debate on this topic which we hope will deepen an understanding of human trafficking and an appreciation of the harm it is causing within European society today.
