    Budget

    € 80 000 (€ 21 000 of EU support)

    Timeframe

    April 2005 — November 2005

    Partners

    Ministry of Justice of North Rhine Westphalia, Germany; Judicial School, Barcelona; Institute of Judicial Studies, Netherlands

    Objectives and results

    The project consisted in organising a two-and-a-half-day seminar in Rome, open to magistrates and police officers. The case study approach was combined with theoretical presentations.

    The aim was to exchange the most efficient methods and to encourage international judicial cooperation and the use of European bodies such as Eurojust.

    The main result was the creation of an IT database, designed as a tool for disseminating knowledge about the trafficking and exploitation of human beings and about the ‘new mafia’.
