    Objectives and results

    The main objective of this project was to develop a model protocol for government officials to correctly interview migrants in order to determine whether they are victims of trafficking and related violence. To implement this protocol, training was organised for law enforcement officials and other front-line workers who encounter trafficked persons. It helped them deal more sensitively with migrants, especially those who may have been trafficked. Around 180 law enforcement officers from three member states took part in the training sessions.
