Look. Listen. Ask. Act!
How Human Trafficking changed the life of a young TV-journalist.

There's no need for pity, according to Inge Bell, and there's no need to only shed a few tears because of the atrocities that happen to victims of Human Trafficking. In her passionate talk award-winning human rights activist Inge Bell - business woman and former investigative TV-journalist - shares her personal philosophy on life: Act with what you have at hand!

Inge Bell is a Media Entrepreneur & Human Rights Activist, Publicist & Producer, Consultant & Coach.

Born in communist Romania but raised in Munich, Inge Bell is the managing director of a media holding company with branches in Germany and Washington D.C. As a slavist and Eastern Europe historian she worked as an investigative foreign reporter with the ARD (First German Television) directly at the trouble spots in (South-) Eastern Europe – reporting on site on organized crime and human trafficking. Until today, she is committed as a human rights activist to fighting against human trafficking and for humane living conditions for the disabled in Eastern Europe: besides offering hands-on humanitarian help for minors in forced prostitution and disabled persons, she is a passionate speaker in film presentations, a lecturer for University seminars on human rights and the author of several books.

Inge Bell has been awarded as “Woman of Europe” and with the German Federal Cross of Merit.
