30 July is the United Nations “World Day against Trafficking in Persons” – find out about the International Forum of Solidarity’s initiatives in Bosnia.
In November 2013, the International Forum of Solidarity, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, set up a European online resource centre for the prevention of human trafficking.
The information gathered on the site aims to raise awareness of the issue to prevent cases of trafficking and help victims, whose numbers are growing in Europe. In 2014 the site had 3755 visits, 38% of which were frequent.
Amela Efendic, director of the European Resource Center for the Prevention of Trafficking & ISF, Bosnia, explains: “This crime affects all countries and denies millions of people their basic human rights. The public knows very little about this issue so we have to combat a great deal of prejudice.”
