How to better fight together, the trafficking of women in West Africa for the purposes of the sex trade and to support their rehabilitation?



RENATE members in France share with us news of the forthcoming conference which will take place in Paris, on Tuesday 8 October 2019.

The Sovereign Order of Malta, through its two anti-trafficking ambassadors in Geneva (Michel Veuthey) and Lagos, Nigeria (Romain de Villeneuve), is organizing this symposium to discuss the issue of the sexual exploitation of young women in West Africa, particularly Nigerian women victims of trafficking.

This conference aims to strengthen synergies, partnerships and alliances between the various regional and international agencies and organizations, local non-governmental organizations and civil society, including local faith-based organizations and has two specific objectives: (1) Strengthen relations between the different actors involved in the fight against trafficking and (2) Continue to elaborate and implement solutions identified with the help of experts.

Starting at 08:30, involving keynote speeches and three Round-table discussion groups, the conference will conclude with a buffet lunch at 13:00, to facilitate further networking and engagement amongst the attendees.
