At Convention in Nice during the Leadership Training, D-Advocacy Committee Chairs judged in unison human trafficking as one of the most grave human rights violations to fight as it happens in all countries worldwide whether nationally or transnationally.
The ZI CoE Committee has prepared a PPT on the “Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings”, a far-reaching and comprehensive international treaty to prevent trafficking in human beings, protect the victims and prosecute the traffickers.
Like the CoE Istanbul Convention the Anti-Trafficking Convention is open to accession by any country in the world. Therefore it is a practical tool for all Zonta Clubs worldwide to specifically fight trafficking in human beings and to advocate for non-discrimination, gender equality and women’s rights.
The PPT is provided with footnotes for detailed explanations to become an easy to use, self-explanatory advocacy tool and to serve you as a document.
To provide a complete picture on instruments fighting trafficking in human beings the PPT also covers on two foils the most important criteria of the “UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons”.
