    Ministry of the Interior, Slovak Republic

    148.000€ (EU grant – 118.000€)

    Ongoing 2011-2012 (18 months)

    International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), Austria

    Objectives and results
    The project aims at establishing conditions for systematic, coordinated and harmonized data collection on trafficking in Slovakia. Another objective is to enhance awareness among the general public and representatives of selected professional public and non-governmental institutions of newly emerging forms of trafficking, including but not limited to labour exploitation.

    To this end, data collection mechanisms should be established through development of a software application. Moreover, promotional campaigns involving various media, training activities, workshops and an international conference are planned as well.

    The foreseen activities should increase the number of calls to the National Helpline for Victims of Trafficking in Human Beings. Professional competences of the representatives of selected agencies focused on identification of trafficking for forced labour should be enhanced thanks to training sessions.
