Vatican conference on human trafficking

Catholic World News - April 10, 2014

The Pontifical Academy of Sciences is hosting a two-day conference on combating human trafficking.

The conference, organized by the Catholic Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, features prelates, religious sisters, and law enforcement officials from INTERPOL, the UK, Australia, India, Italy, and Romania.

“What we want to do is explore the way in which the pattern of cooperation between the Church-- particularly religious women-- and the metropolitan police is having a beneficial effect in the struggle against human trafficking,” Cardinal Vincent Nichols said in an interview with Vatican Radio. “So we want to offer what's being done in London as something of a model for cooperation in other parts of the world, especially in the big cities.”
