Partner Meeting in Sofia




The penultimate ELI partner meeting was held in Sofia on the   1st and 2nd of October hosted by the Bulgarian partner BGRF.  A roundtable with Bulgarian stakeholders was extremely informative.  Presentations were given by a representative of the National Commission for Combatting Trafficking, a member of parliament, a judge, a representative of the ministry for foreign affairs, a member of the border police as well as NGO representatives.  A lively debate followed with particular focus on the return of victims of trafficking to Bulgaria, especially children.  On day two the ELI training toolkit was presented and discussed in detail.  It was a very productive two days.
