European Anti-trafficking Day on October 18th

Prevention against human trafficking is included in the National Action Plan to combat human trafficking in Switzerland. Since 2012, several events have been organized at the cantonal and national levels in order to sensitize parts of the Swiss population to this grave violation of human rights. During the two anti-human trafficking Weeks in 2013 and 2015, numerous events took place in various Cantons of Switzerland. The type of events varied and included film screenings, photo exhibitions, discussions, conferences, theatre plays and more. Every year, the European Anti-trafficking Day – October 18th – is the occasion for the Swiss population to participate in events, receive information, and to better understand the mechanisms behind human trafficking
