    Project
    Enhancing Victims Protection through Operational Networking and Cooperation and Joint Multi-Disciplinary Trainings for Counter-Trafficking Specialists

    Reference
    ISEC/2007/469

    Promoter
    Federal Police, Belgium

    Budget
    € 550 000 (€ 390 000 of EU support)

    Timeframe
    From 2008 to 2009

    Partners
    Eleven Member States, three candidate countries (Croatia, FYROM, Turkey) and three neighbouring countries — Belarus, Moldova and Ukraine.

    Objectives and results
    The project aimed to reinforce interservice coordination at regional, national and international level between counter-trafficking specialists from law enforcement services, the judiciary, NGOs and international organisations. Relations were to be developed with national parliaments and especially with parliamentary committees responsible for organised crime issues, in particular preventing trafficking in human beings (THB) and protecting the victims of THB.

    By exchanging information and best practices between operational specialists from EU, candidate and neighbouring countries, the project helped to implement the European Directive on Short Residence Permits for Victims of Trafficking.

    The results of the project are:

    • 2 expert meetings
    • 10 national training sessions
    • 4 international conferences
