The “Understanding, Preventing and Combating Trafficking in Persons” online course shall soon be available online in English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, and Portuguese on our website www.cuhd.org.
Since the course began in 2020, by the end of 2023, 1,230 students have already registered for the first version of the course.
The course is now being updated and developed in the form and substance with the help of academic partners.
We are designing this course to:
- Give access to videos and analyses from leading international anti-trafficking specialists (list of experts).
- Share best practices on combating and preventing trafficking in human beings by sharing documents, videos, and handbooks on protecting, rehabilitating, and reinserting victims.
- Make available the critical material for reflection and action developed by international organizations (UNODC, OHCHR, IOM, UNHCR, UNICEF), regional organizations (in particular the Council of Europe and the European Union as well as the OSCE), NGOs (in particular ICMC), research and training centers, foundations, media (ARTE, BBC, etc.), religious communities, in particular the Catholic Church, not forgetting organizations run by survivors of this form of contemporary slavery.
We have illustrated the course with many videos, reports, guidelines, manuals, and testimonies, providing participants with the most recognized documents and data.
The interdisciplinary online course “Understanding, Preventing and Combating Trafficking In Persons – An Online Course” is planned to meet the expectations of an audience at different levels:
- People who are active in and responsible for human trafficking projects,
- Experts looking for a genuine reference library on trafficking, legislation and action plans by country, guides, and research on trafficking in human beings from the most important legal and operational actors,
- Anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of human trafficking and help victims and survivors.
Participants will be able to navigate freely through the course and quickly reach the topic individual participants are interested in.
It shall be free of charge to make it available to a broad audience.
