Global Online Counter Child Trafficking Conference – October 16-18, 2013

Collaborative Frontline Practice – Working Together to End Child Trafficking and Exploitation.

This online event aims to bring together the global Counter Child Trafficking community to connect, share and learn from what works on the frontline in a free and accessible format through the use of technology. The speaker line-up includes academics, clinicians, frontline practitioners and other representatives from organisations like Polaris, ECPAT, Chab Dai, Love 146, Save the Children, Terre des Hommes, AFRUCA, Victoria Climbie Foundation UK, Barnardo’s, Children’s Society, International Justice Mission and Unicef as well as programme leaders and practitioners from grassroots community projects in the USA, Africa, Europe, India, South East Asia and Australia.

The Global Online Counter Child Trafficking Conference 2013 is the first event of its kind. It is our hope that this event will further encourage collaboration and the creation of partnerships to strengthen the global response to child trafficking and exploitation.

  • 44 webinars
  • 3 consecutive days
  • Across time zones
  • No travel necessary
  • Free to participate
  • An English-language programme that represents a wide range of subjects related to best practices to end child trafficking and related forms exploitation, as well as care and support services for survivors.

The programme has a strong practice focus and our aim is for participants to leave with practical information, tools and resources that they can explore and implement in their own work.
Our three guiding principles are:

  • Child-centred frontline practice. This event focuses on the needs of children and young people who are victims of trafficking and exploitation
  • Child Protection. It is our collective view that child trafficking is a child protection issue and we approach this event from that perspective.
  • Collaboration. We wish to promote and support the work that is being done globally by the many organisations and individuals involved in the field and further encourage the development of partnerships and collaborative working in the field.

The Conference is not about Political debate and lobbying. We fully realise that this is a crucial component in the eradication of child trafficking and exploitation, but we feel that there are many forums where the global and national (political) debates are taking place and we are therefore not aiming to replicate that. Instead the programme aims to be about sharing and learning from frontline practice, experience and expertise.
