The conference of the Austrian Task Force on Trafficking in Human Beings takes place on the occasion of the EU Anti-Trafficking Day. This year’s event is primarily intended to take into account the changed circumstances brought by the use of state-of-the-art technology in the fight against human trafficking, demonstrating that its use brings not only opportunities but also new challenges.
