    Objectives and results
    The project's objective was to enhance knowledge and to improve the operational skills of various stakeholders in order to protect children from trafficking for sexual purposes and to recognise child victims of trafficking.

    The project also aimed to address the specific needs of children through using a  child rights basis and to improve prosecution of traffickers. A training manual in various languages was drafted for three levels of stakeholders: social care and welfare services, law enforcement and judicial authorities and policy makers.

    The project is based on a twinning concept.
