Trafficking in human beings. Online seminar 20 years after the UN Protocol of Palermo
From 29 and 30 June, our city will be the virtual headquarters of the Implementing and going beyond the Palermo Protocol Webinar online. The event takes place on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the United Nations Protocol to prevent, combat and punish trafficking in people, in particular women and children (Palermo Protocol), which was the first international agreement on trafficking in people, marking a fundamental change in the international approach to the exploitation of people for profit. The protocol was also the first international treaty to provide a broad definition of trafficking, to recognize multiple aspects of trafficking and to promote full respect for the human rights of victims.
The choice of Palermo, where the seminar would have been held if the health emergency had not intervened, is not only due to the fact that in Palermo the Protocol was adopted 20 years ago, but also and above all to the fact that the city and its administration have become a symbol of welcome and enhancement of the diversity associated with migration.
The Webinar will be opened by a greeting from the Mayor of Palermo Leoluca Orlando, the President of the On the Road Cooperative Vincenzo Castelli and Professor Vincenzo Militello, University of Palermo.
The webinar will be in English.
Registration is free with limited places.
