Anti-trafficking workshop held in Budapest

Publicated on: January 26, 2024

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) and the Ministry of Interior held a two-day workshop on combating trafficking in human beings on 24-25 January 2024. The meeting focused on the victim-centred approach called the "social path" developed by the international organization.

The aim of the workshop was to help participants better understand the logic of the "social path" developed by the OSCE to identify and assist victims of trafficking and the benefits for them.

The "social path" framework is designed to provide an alternative formal, state-led identification for long-term protection and support for victims of trafficking in human beings in cases where the victim does not wish to participate in criminal proceedings and press charges against the perpetrators.

The event was attended by professionals from law enforcement, child protection, social and employment services from the capital and the countryside involved in the fight against trafficking in human beings, as well as Hungarian and international NGOs and NGOs supporting victims.

In the framework of the interactive workshop, the experts learned about the OSCE's proposal for a "social path" and discussed the procedures in place in Hungary, the current situation of victim assistance, the needs and further possibilities.
