    Objectives and results
    The project aimed at strengthening police cooperation in fighting organized criminal groups engaged in human smuggling. To this end a workshop on the EU instruments to tackle organised criminal networks was held. The organisation of a Joint Investigation Team was presented as a modern model of international cooperation.

    Owing to its geographical position and relatively better economy and social development, Turkey is more affected by such illegal movements than neighbouring countries.
