European Institute for Crime Prevention and Control (HEUNI), Finland; Institute of Law, Tartu University, Estonia
Objectives and results
The main aim of the project was to explore the organisational and functional aspects of trafficking with a focus on the following three questions:
- How can the organisational structure in trafficking in persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation be described, and what factors explain this structure?
- How do different market circumstances affect the organisational structure of trafficking in persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation?
- What legal channels are being used to maintain and simplify the trade?
Research activities were limited to partner countries and were conducted on the basis of police reports and interviews with selected actors. Public services and non-governmental organisations contributed to the research.
