    Objectives and results

    The project aimed to help prevent and combat child trafficking by developing a strong private-public partnership. It paid a special attention to the following aspects:

    • review of existing methodologies for supporting and identifying children who are victims of, or at risk from, trafficking;
    • research into the profile of children who are victims or at risk, with a view to developing relevant indicators;
    • adapting existing training modules to better enable private-public actors to use identification and support methodologies;
    • developing best practices for identification, support and assistance.

    Four training seminars and four training courses in central police schools were planned, involving around 240 participants.
