CIFAL Jeju Hosts Training on Human Security and Trafficking for Asian Local Actors
5 April 2012, Jeju, South Korea – UNITAR’s Centre for Training Local Authorites (CIFAL Jeju) in South Korea completed on Friday March 30, its second workshop in the field of human trafficking, titled “Enhancing Human Security: Developing Capacities to Protect and Assist Victims of Human Trafficking”.
With experts from Ewha Womans University, IOM and UNITAR, the workshop focused on protection and prevention of human trafficking and the role of local authorities in strengthening awareness and counter-trafficking measures in their municipalities, cities and regional governments.
Part of CIFAL Jeju’s two-pronged training themes on human security and green growth, the workshop concluded with concrete areas for follow-up tied to: strengthening legislative and policy frameworks; securing the financing of anti-trafficking programmes and their sustainability, in addition to better multi-stakeholder participation.
CIFAL Jeju is part of a global network of nine UNITAR training centres for local authorities called the CIFAL Network. Through the CIFAL Network’s trademark CityShare methodology, participants learn from each other and indicate their personal commitment to pursue SMART objectives. UNITAR and its CIFAL in Jeju will build follow-up activities on the basis of this second workshop’s conclusions.
