Ten years after the Palermo Protocol, top world personalities convened from December 10-12, 2010, in an International Forum in Luxor, Egypt, to outline a roadmap for ending human trafficking. The Forum was organized by End Human Trafficking Now! and The Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT).
“I am convinced that, over time, the most effective weapon to combat human trafficking will be civil society’s rejection of these vile activities” — His Highness the Aga Khan
As part of this initiative the 49th Ismaili Imam, His Highness the Aga Khan, was among those in the jury (see photo, below) who presented the first-ever award in history to recognize a business executive‘s energy and commitment in tackling human trafficking.
The Ismaili Imam also delivered opening remarks at this forum, which are now been incorporated into our original piece Aga Khan in Prestigious Jury for First-Ever Business Leader’s Award to Fight Human Trafficking.
