The complexity of human mobility in the Western-Balkans was central to a workshop convened by the OSCE, targeting policy-makers, criminal justice and migration practitioners and other relevant stakeholders from the public and private sectors working in the areas of prevention, prosecution and assistance to trafficking-in-persons victims, migrants and refugees.
Political context, impact of border control measures, access to asylum, risk analysis and challenges of irregular migration flows were critical to the interactive discussions held in Podgorica, Montenegro, 31st August- 1st September, 2016.
The protection of human rights and the need for improvement in identifying victims of trafficking during mass migrations movements and times of crisis, were amongst agreed priorities arising from the workshop.
