The municipality of The Hague and ProDemos are organising a film and debate evening on the subject of human trafficking at the Filmhuis Den Haag cinema, starting at 19.00 on Monday 14 March. Access to the event is free of charge for everyone. The evening is linked to the conference on human trafficking being organised on 14 March by the Dutch Senate and House of Representatives as part of the parliamentary dimension of the Dutch EU Presidency.
A glimpse into the lives of migrants
The evening will start with a screening of the film The Paradise Suite. It provides a glimpse into the lives of six migrants in Amsterdam. The murky world in which they find themselves or which affects their lives is far from isolated. Illegality, enforced prostitution and human trafficking affect the lives of thousands of people. After the screening, Joost van Ginkel (Director) and Corinne Dettmeijer-Vermeulen (Dutch National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children) will join the moderator Dina Siegel-Rozenblit (Professor of Criminology) in discussing whether such abuses can be prevented and whether migrants are sufficiently protected.
Public events relating to parliamentary dimension of EU Presidency
The municipality of The Hague and ProDemos (House for Democracy and the Rule of Law) are organising a total of three public events as part of the parliamentary dimension of the EU Presidency. Residents of The Hague will therefore be actively informed and involved in the themes being discussed in the city by parliamentarians from the 28 EU member states. In addition to the film evening on human trafficking, there will also be events to accompany the conferences on energy and security policy.
