Finnish presidency 2023-2024 focuses on child trafficking

From 1 July 2023 Finland assumes the presidency of the Expert Group on Children at Risk.

With a particular focus on trafficking of children, the Finnish presidency aims to have a close collaboration with the CBSS Task Force on Trafficking in Human Beings. A joint workshop will be organised in Rovaniemi on the 30th of November. The Finnish presidency also aims to organise workshops on the topics of migration and Ukraine, as well as an international conference to discuss key findings. Barnahus, with a focus on law, will also be a feature.

In addition to combatting trafficking of children, the Finnish presidency will continue the German presidency’s focus on counteracting violence against children. Read more about German Presidency here.
