Actors against Trafficking for Labour Exploitation
Report on Cooperation between Stakeholders at the National Level in the countries of the Baltic Sea region to Address Trafficking for Labour Exploitation
The Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), January 2013, 107 pages
The aim of this study is to obtain an overview of the different actors who are currently involved in the work of combating and preventing trafficking for labour exploitation in the countries of the Baltic Sea and who are the Members of the CBSS (Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway , Poland, Russian Federation and Sweden).
The report will serve as a starting point and as a basis for dialogue at the national level in each member state. The findings are based mainly on the expertise and experience of national actors currently working on the issue of trafficking for labour exploitation and forced labour. As such, the report is meant to capture resources as well as challenges as they are perceived and identified by the relevant national actors, according to the individual context in that specific country.
This study was conducted as the second phase of the DEFLECT project, and in preparation for the implementation of a two-year flagship project “ADSTRINGO - Addressing trafficking in human beings for labour exploitation through improved partnerships, enhanced diagnostics and intensified organisational approaches”.
