    Objectives and results

    The objective is to improve knowledge and cooperation about trafficking for begging purposes and to develop an appropriate support for victims.

    In this context, there are three specific objectives:

    1. To enhance knowledge and awareness amongst law enforcement, policy-makers, service providers, legislators, the media and civil society of the importance of trans-national trafficking for forced criminal activities and begging in Europe;
    2. To ensure that service providers, law enforcement agencies and other relevant statutory institutions possess expertise to effectively and rightly address trafficking
    3. To foster transnational operational cooperation by strengthening partnerships to transfer innovative approaches of intervention especially on joint investigations, referral of cases and strategies for victims’ assistance.

    Training sessions should be organised for practitioners in three European sub-regions.
