Millions of refugees have entered Europe since 2015. Thousands more have perished in their journey along the way. With a major migration crisis staring governments in the face, solutions to the problem remain elusive. What’s worse, CNN investigations also reveal refugees being abused, held for ransom, and forced into prostitution or hard labor against their will. To combat this, the CNN Freedom Project, in collaboration with Link Campus University and the Essam and Dalal Obaid Foundation, is bringing together top government and human rights experts from Europe and Africa. The aim is simple, yet significant: to discover fresh, bold ideas in identifying human trafficking survivors, while dismantling the criminal operations lurking inside this international migration crisis.
