JFS Autumn Lecture(Human rights seminar)

JFS organizes  a lecture & seminar in November. Please join us!

Meet and listen to the Swedish Ambassador for Combating Human Trafficking, Mr Per-Anders Sunesson, talks about human trafficking and what is being done to combat this hideous crime.

In 2016 the Swedish Government decided to put in place a new function within the Ministry for Foreign Affairs – an Ambassador for Combating Human Trafficking.

The task of the ambassador is to represent Sweden on this topic internationally and also to promote the Swedish legislation regarding prostitution as an effective legislation to lower demand for girls and women to exploit in prostitution.

At this meeting Ambassador Sunesson will talk about his work and what is being done internationally to combat human trafficking.
Human trafficking is a crime that exploits women, children and men for numerous purposes including forced labour and sex.

The International Labour Organization estimates that 21 million people are victims of forced labour globally. This estimate also includes victims of human trafficking for labour and sexual exploitation.

While it is not known how many of these victims were trafficked, the estimate implies that currently, there are millions of trafficking in persons victims in the world.

Every country in the world is affected by human trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims.
