Preparations are well advanced a month ahead of the third Parliamentarians Against Human Trafficking event, a seminar themed at anti trafficking legislation on protection of victims which will be held in Rome on Thursday 22 March 2012. The event will provide an opportunity for parliamentarians from across the EU to join together to discuss the Italian experience on anti-trafficking legislation on identification, protection and assistance to victims of trafficking and ways to use good practice and experience in the EU member states’ national contexts. The host of the PAHT seminar is Senator Alberto Maritati and Italian Senate. We are expecting participants from Austria, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Denmark, Germany, Poland, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and UK together with their counterparts from Italy. The MPs will be joined by NGO counterparts from Bulgaria, Slovenia, Italy and UK, law enforcement judiciary representatives as well as business community representatives. The event will be held in the Italian Senate. The PAHT team is grateful to the office of Senator Alberto Maritati for their assistance in organising this event.
