    Objectives and results
    The objective of the project was to allow an in-depth exchange of information and expertise with Egyptian officials on anti-trafficking policies at the local and at the EU level.

    To this end, a four day study visit was undertaken to the UK (London and Sheffield). Organised in co-operation with the UK's Serious Organised Crime Agency (SOCA), it aimed at:

    • Providing a solid background on the trafficking issue, including local, national, and international cooperative efforts to combat trafficking in persons.
    • Introducing participants to policies and strategies to prevent and actively combat trafficking of persons, including prosecution of and enforcement against traffickers.
    • Providing Egyptian experts with information about initiatives to protect, assist and provide social reintegration for trafficking victims.
    • Demonstrating how representatives from a variety of societal sectors can effectively work together to address this issue and to encourage cooperation among stakeholders.
