On 29 November 2017, the counter-trafficking community from the Baltic Sea Region, together with diplomats and ambassadors based in Stockholm gathered at ‘Fotografiska’ for the first ever Baltic Sea Counter Trafficking Award Gala Dinner.
To this day, in all sectors of our work, cases of sexual and labour exploitation remain too common. Be it from the service industry to hospitality and fashion. From the restaurants and hotels we visit, the services we use and items we buy – all of these may potentially rely on human trafficking, forced labour & exploitation. Among the invitees were also local Swedish activists and cultural actors, widening the spectrum of counter-trafficking as a joint responsibility for all sectors of our society.
