On 13-14 June, CAP International and its members Women@thewell (UK), Comision Unidos vs Trata (Mexico) and Fondation Scelles (France) presented and participated in an international conference on “Sharing models and best practices to end modern slavery and restore dignity to its victims”.
Organised by the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the conference kept a strong focus on the successful “Nordic Model”. It provided space to discuss criminalising the purchase of sex as a way to end trafficking, and an opportunity to engage with Maltese political actors, including the President of Malta, as well as exchange best practices on policies. Several CAP members presented their perspectives from the frontline:
