    Objectives and results

    The project should develop cooperation between trade unions, NGOs, faith based organisations and partners to curb trafficking for forced labour in a number of key EU countries.

    During the project, three EU wide conferences should be held in Madrid in 2012, in Prague in 2013 and in Bucharest in 2014 to share challenges, knowledge and develop strategies on three common areas of concern: large group cases of trafficked workers, gender dimension in labour trafficking and recruitment mechanisms with a specific focus on the internet. Findings will be shared in three thematic working papers.

    Moreover, two EU Fora will be organised to discuss new trends on labour trafficking with a wider audience. The first forum will be hosted in 2013 in Vilnius and the second one will happen in early 2015 in Brussels.

    Main findings of the project should be included in the thematic working papers. The three international networks (ASI, ITUC, CCME) will ensure a regular exchange with similar projects and initiatives.
