The OSCE is pleased to enclose a call for participants for an OSCE simulation-based training on combating human trafficking along migration routes, which will be held from 5 to 9 June 2017 at the Centre of Excellence for Stability Police Units (CoESPU) in Vicenza, Italy.
The training is designed for a multi-disciplinary group of 70 participants, including specialized investigators on human trafficking crimes, prosecutors, financial investigators, labour inspectors, lawyers, cultural mediators/interpreters, journalists/media representatives, anti-trafficking NGOs, specialized staff working in shelters for human trafficking victims and public social services providers.
Interested experts are invited to apply directly for one specific position in the simulation (see job descriptions on pages 7-16 of the call for participants) by sending their application form to email@example.com no later than 2 April 2017. The project can cover the travel expenses of selected participants, along with their accommodation at the CoESPU. Please refer to the aforementioned call for more detailed information concerning administrative arrangements related to participation in the training.
Based on criminal scenarios, these live-exercises see role players simulating cases of labour and sexual exploitation among migrants, including child victims. Participants are tasked with promptly identifying victims and traffickers, paying attention both to the effectiveness of the investigation and prosecution on the one hand, and the protection of human rights through a victim-centred approach on the other. An important goal of the simulations is also to promote the use of financial investigations.
