"In the framework of the intersectorial project 'Fighting Human Trafficking in Africa,' the Panel Discussion will be organized by the Women's Consortium of Nigeria (WOCON) and UNESCO. This event is part of a cross-cutting project on poverty eradication with the Social and Human Sciences and Culture Sectors. The discussion will provide tools and strategies for policy-makers and NGOs to better combat this modern form of slavery. Experts will critically analyse the complexity of the trafficking phenomenon and will identify best practices in pilot countries, in order to provide inspiration for culturally appropriate responses."
The panel will take place in the United Nations building in New York, from 3 to 5 pm, on March 8, 2005.
