Objectives and results
The project aims at reducing the risk of trafficking in relation to specific groups of the Roma population, in the perspective of forced labour purposes and other forms of exploitation such as forced begging and forced criminality.
For this purpose, three specific objectives should be met:
- strengthening national and international reference mechanism with the inclusion of new entities
- mapping the causes of vulnerability, conditions and modus operandi of exploitation of the most threatened groups
- raising awareness of trafficking in human beings among Roma communities and in a wider public, especially on the risks connected with working abroad. A film and the distribution of awareness raising materials should be prepared.
