Objectives and results
In order to tackle the problem of trafficking, especially for the purpose of forced labour, it is crucial to broaden the awareness, attention and research into all its forms. Moreover, it is urgent to raise the awareness of the high risk sectors, engaging them on the problem and inviting them to help mitigate the demand and promote the identification and protection of potential victims.
The main objective of the Project Briseis is to contribute to raise the awareness on the potential victims of THB for forced labour, encouraging consumers to buy responsibly and providing employers with the necessary knowledge and tools to identify situations of THB.
Thanks to the training actions and an awareness raising campaign, the target groups will be more capable to identify victims, potentially increasing the number of identified cases and increasing the possibility of victims to receive support.
Some of the main output of the project will be:
- A raising awareness campaign
- development of a training tool/guidelines based on the UNODC training materials on THB for forced labour
- A production of procedures handbooks on how to address the high risk sector stakeholders (PT, SE, RO, EN).
- A piloted training programme on THB for forced labour, available for a potential follow up project, multiplying the effects
