Stop The Traffik: Iceland
Human Trafficking In Iceland?
Human trafficking is a global problem that touches every community - even here in Iceland.
In 2019, our team set out to map Iceland´s current human trafficking manifestations and eradication efforts. We collaborated that information into the following report, and continue to advocate for the necessary changes identified in it's findings.
What We Do:
Creating the inclusive communities required to combat trafficking is not achieved by arriving at a destination - but rather by maintaining an active process of listening and responding to our community's ever-evolving needs. Our approach at Stop the Traffik: Iceland is guided by continuous networking with stakeholders whether they be healthcare providers, politicians, grassroot activists, or everyday members of our community. Through ongoing data-collections, we organize our strategies and advocacy to be relevant to and thereby effective for our local context.
We organize to get the information we collect into the hands of those who need it. We run educational workshops on relevant topics trending in our research, and conduct everything from general awareness presentations to specialized trainings for workers, organizations, and the general public. Follow our website for upcoming events, or send us an email to partner with us on an event together.
