About the conference:
The IAP now has regional conferences in 6 regions throughout the world, but the longest standing regional conference is the IAP European Regional Conference, which traditionally has always been held in the City Hall in The Hague. It attracts operational and generally more junior prosecutors from all over Europe and sometimes beyond-usually about 50-60 and is always well received. The event takes on a more informal and educative stance than some of the other conferences, and we try to choose themes which raise awareness amongst those attending who may be meeting prosecutors from beyond their jurisdiction for the first time. The language is English and there is always a realbuzz about this event.
As well as presenting an interesting and informative programme of practical value to any prosecutor in Europe who finds him or her self dealing with cases –involving gender issues,such as domestoc violence,honour killings,genital mutilation, human trafficking, this event allows prosecutors from all over Western Europe and sometimes beyond to mix with each other thus improving understanding across borders and promoting a greater sense of community between prosecutors wherever they are located.
The topic we have chosen this year is ‘Gender Justice’ we want to look at some or all the following themes (there may be others)
Human Trafficking-sexual exploitation and enslavement (perhaps in particular the increase in use of witch craft (ju ju) to exert power) .We shall also take the opportunityto review how the newly launched IAP specialist Trafficking in Persons Platform(‘TIPP’) is performing.
Use of sexual violence in conflict as weapon of war
