International Seminar for Judges Featured

A high-level International Seminar on “The Critical Role of the Judiciary in Combating Trafficking in Human Beings” was inaugurated in.

The seminar was organized by MASHAV and MCTC, in cooperation with: OSCE (Office of the Special Representative and Coordinator in Combating Trafficking in Human Beings); UNODC (The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime); IOM (the International Organization for Migration); the Institute of Advanced Judicial Studies, Jerusalem; and the Israeli Ministry of Justice.
Keynote speaker was Dr. Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, OSCE Special Representative and Coordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings.
Ambassador Daniel Carmon, Head of MASHAV, greeted the distinguished participants, stating that: “Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims. I believe that as members of the international community and as national policy makers, we need to join our strengths and share strategies, policies and practical solutions in face of this grave violation of human rights.”
He added that “As reflected in this high-level seminar, we believe that cooperation between international agencies addressing the issue of trafficking is of utmost importance to nurture cross-border collaboration and exchange information in the common fight against human trafficking.”
The specially designed program included high-level speakers and professional study visits. Among others, the distinguished participants visited the Israeli Supreme Court, and met with Justice Prof. Elyakim Rubenstein, Supreme Court Judge and Former Attorney General of Israel. They also visited the Knesset – Israel’s Parliament, and met with M.P. David Tzur, Head of the Parliamentary Committee for Trafficking in Human Beings.
