Objectives and results
The project aimed at developing a composite index of trafficking activities by country and by year, based on statistical work done by UNODC, IOM, ILO and the U.S. State Department.
The first stage of the project consisted of the creation of the CITE Index measuring the scale of trafficking in approximately 120 countries. The applied methodology was discussed with stakeholders at a major conference organised in a partner country. The outcomes were provided to policymakers and the research community as a tool for developing initiatives in the real trafficking hotspots identified by the Index.
The second stage of the project consisted of research activities to explore the core determinants and mechanisms of trafficking. Eight scientific papers and policy reports will be disseminated through the second conference.
