On the occasion of this launch, the Fine Tune project will be organising a conference bringing together policymakers, practitioners and activists from across the EU as well as EU institutions. The conference will be co-hosted by members of the EP in cooperation with the International Trade Union Confederation, Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe and Anti-Slavery International.
From October 2012 to August 2015, the Fine Tune project worked to build partnerships to address new trends in labour trafficking. Special focus was on collective responses to exploitation of increasingly large groups of workers exposed to trafficking, gender dimension of trafficking for labour exploitation and the use of ICTs in recruitment.
Partners in 7 countries formed national coalitions on labour trafficking, and presented recommendations to inform policy responses. Internationally, the Fine Tune project contributed to better understanding of labour exploitation in the anti-trafficking agenda of intergovernmental organizations.
These and other challenges will be at the centre of discussions during the event. The event will be divided into a couple of panel debates, which will illustrate the current situation of the victims of labour trafficking, the policy-making aspects and project work on EU and national level.
