Human Trafficking is Hidden in Plain Sight
February 25th, 2021 – ”Shine a Light on Slavery” Day

Globally, over 40 million people suffer from exploitation. Be it sexual exploitation, forced labour, minor trafficking, forced marriages or other forms of human trafficking, the victims of the phenomenon end up profoundly traumatized and, often without the protection and the services that they so desperately need.

Seven embassies in Romania, Embassy of Canada, Royal Danish Embassy, French Embassy in Romania, Embassy of Israel in Romania, Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, Embassy of Sweden, The British Embassy in Bucharest, join efforts with eLiberare and thirteen other NGOs in the global awareness campaign End It Movement and mark on the 25th of February 2021 ”Shine a Light on Slavery” Day by saying a firm ”No!” to human trafficking and modern slavery.

The Department of Peace Operations works upon request from conflict parties and local, national and international organisations and agencies to support violence prevention, peacebuilding, mediation, and post-war recovery. DPO experts include practitioners, analysts, diplomats, and others.


The International Peace & Development Training Center is one of the world’s leading providers of training, capacity building and professional development support for practitioners, governments, UN and local, national and international organisations working in peacebuilding, prevention, and post-war peace consolidation.


The National Peace Department works for a world in which young people share their belief that their attitudes and behaviors are decisive in resolving conflicts and waging peace, a world in which they can and do act upon that belief with the beauty, creativity and enthusiasm specific to their age.


“As a professional development practitioner I had taken many courses on Monitoring and Evaluation of Development Programmes/Projects. The training on Developing Strategic Tools for Measuring Impact and Effectiveness of Peacebuilding Projects and Interventions has broadened my knowledge and understanding of the tools and skills for systematic and structured ways for measuring Impact and Effectives of Pecebuilding Projects and Interventions. The training is very important and timely given to equip Civil Affairs Field Staff on Monitoring and Evaluation concepts, tools and processes.”
