Subject: request: info about trafficking issues in Kosovo

        Dear List:
                Next week, representatives from several international
organizations and NGOs will be meeting in Sarajevo to develop a
"gender mainstreaming" strategy for Kosovo. The goals of the
meeting are to ensure that the programming of the international
community in Kosovo addresses the issues contained in the
Beijing Platform for action, and to improve cooperation and
coordination between the various organizations and agencies
working on gender issues in Kosovo.
        On Thursday, there will be a special meeting on trafficking (for
forced labour/ forced prostitution). While we have a fair amount of
information about trafficking in other parts of the Balkans region,
news from Kosovo is still spotty. Does anyone have any recent
information about trafficking to or from Kosovo, or know about any
projects or programs (planned or actual) relating to trafficking in
Kosovo? (I do not need further information about the reported
trafficking of Kosovar women and girls out of the refugee camps).
        Thanks for your help,

        Jill Thompson
