THOSE MOST AFFECTED ARE BETTER SUITED TO COMBATING IT
In 2015, a foreign government reported that with the exception of internal trafficking within the EU, Nigerian nationals are the most common trafficking victims in the EU. The majority of Nigerian trafficking victims in Europe come from Edo State, via Libya. One local press report noted that traffickers recruit women and girls from IDP camps in Northeast Nigeria for ostensibly legitimate jobs in Italy but exploit them in prostitution in Italy.
“This conference will focus on effective ways local community women leaders can address human smuggling and trafficking proactively. Local communities are the most affected by this abhorrent crime and are also the first line of defense against human trafficking. Individuals closest to a problem are often the best resource to solving it.
