The purpose of the seminar was to bring together authorities representing different state bodies to discuss relevant THB issues, as well as the role of international organisations and ways of intervening the THB-related crimes.
The OSCE Centre in Ashgabat with the the assistance of the SPMU organised a one day seminar on awareness raising on issues related to trafficking in human beings (THB). Around 30 participants representing different state bodies were expected to discuss trafficking in human beings as such and the differences between THB and facilitation of illegal migration. The role of international organisations and different ways of intervening the crime were discussed as well.
In addition to national participants, representatives of the SPMU and of the OSCE Centre in Ashqabat, there were representatives for international organisations (Interpol, Europol) and OSCE member states (Romania and Ukraine) present.
