There is much learning to be had from the recent visit of the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combatting Trafficking in Human Beings, Ms. Madina Jarbussynova, who commended Denmark for its actions taken to prevent human trafficking for forced labour, as she concluded a three day visit to the country.
Ms. Jarbussynova made particular note of guidelines developed by the Danish Centre against Human Trafficking, which she suggested would ‘’…serve as a good practice to be followed in the region and beyond.” She recommended stronger coordination and engagement with all stakeholders, which would help improve Denmark’s response to human trafficking.
In acknowledging Denmark is currently working on a new National Action Plan Against Human Trafficking, Ms. Jarbussynova suggested that increased attention to regular monitoring and evaluation would be of benefit to its development.
