What is the price of a human being? -campaign

Finland - IOM Helsinki has launched a new counter trafficking public information campaign: “What is the price of a human being?”

Human trafficking in Finland includes labour exploitation and sexual abuse. Reported victims have been both Finnish and foreign nationals.

“The campaign aims to educate the citizens, especially youth about human trafficking and to inform people about responsible consumerism to reduce demand. Raising awareness is key to identify victims,” said IOM Helsinki campaign coordinator Tuija von der Pütten.
