This conference is organised as a joint collaboration between the Council of the Baltic Sea States Expert Group on Children at Risk and the Task Force on Trafficking in Human Beings, under the auspices of the Lithuanian Presidency.
The purpose of the conference is to shed light on how technology facilitates trafficking in children, who the victims are, and what the impact is on children who are trafficked. Participants will also learn more about identification, investigation, safe paths to recovery and justice for children.
Speakers include Agnė Bilotaitė, Lithuanian Minister of Interior; Ylva Johansson, European Commissioner for Home Affairs; Petya Nestorova, Executive Secretary of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings, Cathal Delaney, Head of Team Analysis Project Twins at Europol and a series of experienced researchers and practitioners.
