2017 Durres – an Old Crime in New Forms

Andante Study Days, 3rd-8th May 2017, Durres, Albania

Modern Slavery is an old crime increasingly occurring in new forms in all countries of Europe in the 21st century. Trafficking for exploitation is found in forced prostitution, and in agricultural, construction, industrial and supply industries as well as in domestic work. So learned delegates of Andante, the European Alliance of Catholic Women’s Organisations, at study days on this subject held in Durres Albania in May 2017.

“It is very important that also Catholic women in Europe fight against this crime which is devastating the lives of so many women, children and men”, said Mary McHugh and Vroni Peterhans, presidents of Andante.
