Objectives and results
The overall objective of the project is to enhance and harmonise the methods and procedures for the identification of victims of trafficking (adults and children) within the EU in order to better tackle trafficking and to ensure equal treatment of victims.
More specifically, the project intends to:
- Develop a network of national contact points in the participating countries (Bulgaria, France, Greece, Romania, Spain and The Netherlands) with the aim of collecting and exchanging best practices among law enforcement officers, prosecutors, judges, labour inspectors, organisations providing services to victims, NGOs and trade unions.
- Develop common guidelines and procedures on identification of victims on the basis of national reports. The guidelines will be tested during a 4-month pilot phase in Spain before final endorsement and publication in 7 EU official languages.
- Dissemination and training sessions for key experts
Nearly 150 persons are expected to participate in the project
