OSCE relaunches BESAFE campaign as World Day Against Trafficking approaches


The OSCE have made the decision to re-launch an anti-trafficking safety campaign, begun last year in response to the large number of refugees created by the war in Ukraine, which they have again introduced with the following message:

Dear colleagues and friends, 

Sunday is World Day against Trafficking, and our Office will commemorate it by relaunching our BeSafe campaign, which we created last year with Thomson Reuters. The Campaign helps keep Ukrainian refugees safe from human trafficking by providing basic information on how to recognize traffickers’ tricks, how to avoid them, and how to get help if needed. 

We know from previous humanitarian crises that it takes two years to start identifying large numbers of victims of exploitation, so we believe now it’s the time to keep raising awareness. 

We produced a video we’ll be pushing out on our social media (on Twitter and LinkedIn) on Sunday morning, and we would like to encourage you all to help us spread the word by resharing that further. 

Thank you all for your friendship and support

Office of the OSCE Special Representative for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings
