The Regional Simulation on Referral of Victims of Human Trafficking in the Southern Mediterranean is taking place from 23 to 29 October 2022 in Valletta, Malta under the title “Human Trafficking on Migration Routes“. This major event is organised by the Council of Europe in the framework of the joint programmes with the European Union and in partnership with the Government of Malta.

For the first time in the southern Mediterranean region, this event brings together more than 100 participants and experts, including representatives of governments, judges and prosecutors, law enforcement, social and medical services, labour inspectorates, civil society and the media from Algeria, Belgium, Egypt, France, Italy, Jordan, Lebanon, Libya, Malta, Morocco, Palestine*, Portugal, Switzerland, Tunisia and the UK.

Resulting from joint efforts in strengthening regional cooperation, this simulation takes stock of the establishment of the Tunisian National Referral Mechanism for Victims of Trafficking in Human Beings. This first-of-its-kind initiative in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region was launched by the National Body for Combating Trafficking in Persons (INLCTP) in 2021 with the support of the Council of Europe’s “Support Project for Independent Bodies in Tunisia” and the European Union.
