Frank Noteboom

Keynote Speaker
Frank Noteboom is the head of the Centre against Child- and Human Trafficking – an NGO from the Netherlands. Noteboom formerly was a senior researcher at the Dutch National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children. The Rapporteur is an independent organ within the government reporting on the nature and extent of human trafficking and on the effects of the government policies pursued. At the Dutch Rapporteur, Noteboom wrote several publications/articles and took part in (international) expert and steering committees.

In his current role, Noteboom leads the biggest project and research team on sexual exploitation in the Netherlands and advocates for a stronger and more effective approach. Cooperation and innovation are both key elements that define his work. These core values come together in his responsibility as a Programme Manager of eleven different projects run by three different NGOs. Noteboom: ‘This level of cooperation in the NGO business is quite unique. We have three very different organizations working together intensively to combat human trafficking. This is an important step because anti-trafficking has not been a top government priority in these last couple of years. Innovation really comes to the fore in a project called WATCH Netherlands, in which the Centre works together with Terre des Hommes’.
