Objectives and results

Ensure effective access to justice and the right to be protected in legal procedures for child victims of trafficking in EU Member States, building upon the existing EU instruments and the tools developed in previous EU-funded projects on the topic.

Launch of a practical research programme that focuses on guardianship systems for child victims of trafficking involved in legal procedures in five Member States (Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands and UK).

Development of multidisciplinary training modules that promote minimum standards for guardians and lawyers regarding child victims of trafficking, including specific modules relating to their roles and responsibilities.

Training of guardians (or other representatives according to the country) and lawyers on child victims of trafficking involved in legal procedures at national level in five Member States.

Development of childfriendly information tools for child victims of trafficking in order to inform children of their rights as children, and as child victims of trafficking.

Advocacy to ensure effective legal guardianship for child victims of trafficking in EU Member States and to integrate information and training on trafficking in the curriculum of new guardians and lawyers.

Results

The capacity of representatives (guardians and lawyers) for children victims of trafficking is increased in order to ensure that children are identified as victims (and not perpetrators) and have their rights upheld during legal proceedings in key trafficking destinations countries (Belgium, France, Germany, Netherlands and UK).

Publications and other resources

5 webinars/elearning tools in each country to train guardians and lawyers.

1 booklet for a child and youth friendly terminology.
