ICAT Meeting

In July 2011, in an effort to reinvigorate the structure, interested ICAT members, including ILO, Interpol, IOM, OHCHR, UNHCR, UNICEF, UN Women, UNAIDS and UNODC met in Geneva on the margins of the 17th session of the Human Rights Council.

During this meeting, the ICAT Working Group agreed to strengthen the policy development aspect of its mandate through a series of papers on issues that have surfaced as challenges to anti-trafficking efforts. Prioritized issues were identified through active consultations and review of anti-trafficking interventions of recent years. It was envisaged that the ICAT policy series would provide an opportunity for partner organizations to coordinate on identifying the key challenges in the fight against human trafficking, promoting common strategic priorities and fostering greater policy and programmatic coherence among all actors.
