     Objectives and results

    Civil society was heavily involved in this project. The aim was to develop a nationally harmonised information management system, including common criteria for collecting data on victims, traffickers and criminal justice procedures. The project was in line with the provisions of COM(2005) 514 final and the EU Action Plan (2005/C 311/01). Implementing the pilot phase in Portugal helped participants design and test a software with the agreed indicators.

     Target groups included public officials, law enforcement agents, prosecutors, judges, labour inspectors, immigration services and assistance providers, in different combinations/numbers based on the needs assessment results.
