About the webinar:

Despite a slight increase in the number of joint investigations on trafficking cases in the EU, cross border cooperation in the follow-up of a missing child in migration at risk of (re)trafficking remains the exception rather than the rule.  This webinar will explore the current challenges and gaps in cooperating across borders for the protection of these children. It will look at the current initiatives, resources and opportunities for an improved cooperation and provide key recommendations for action at the EU and national level. This webinar is for every individual or organisation, acting at the frontline or advocacy level, who would like to know more about the issue and to discuss the tools and messages to act upon it.
