Human Trafficking Reloaded: Making Identification & Justice Safe and Accessible for Victims in Digital and post-COVID Times

International Expert Round Table

Due to the ongoing precarious pandemic situation in Austria and many partner countries, we are prone to convert the event, which originally was planned as an event with physical presence of relevant multipliers from various countries, into expert talks - broadly accessible via Live-stream -, where we shall encourage and stimulate a qualitative debate among high-level international, regional and national experts/researchers/practitioners/stakeholders on the following issues:

* Do we need a New Anti-Trafficking Strategy for the Digital and post-COVID Age?

* How other Priorities have trumped Human Trafficking & eventually do more Harm than Good
