In October 2022, the 145th IPU Assembly adopted the resolution entitled Parliamentary impetus to local and regional development of countries with high levels of international migration and to stopping all forms, including state-sponsored, of human-trafficking and human rights abuses. The resolution “calls upon all governments and parliaments to take holistic meaningful and coordinated action, including enacting and enforcing legislation criminalizing trafficking and smuggling”.
To shed light on these issues of concern and support the mobilization of young parliamentarians to work on solutions from a policymaking perspective, the IPU is organizing the fifth online briefing of its Empowerment Series for young parliamentarians on forced labour and human trafficking.
IPU Members are invited to register one young male and one young female parliamentarian to participate in the briefing. Presentations by experts will be followed by discussion among young MPs aimed at sharing good practices on the elimination of forced labour and human trafficking.
Simultaneous interpretation will be available in English, French, Spanish and Arabic.
