Trafficked women - Assistance to victims through reception centres

Development and piloting of training materials relating to the reception, support and voluntary return of trafficked women.
This project continues to build on what the Adoratrices already had ; it has now improved in systematisation, dissemination, awareness with authorities and understanding in society. There was firstly their own informal project, next it was systematised with the first Daphne and this project brings it now to a network.

Comments

This 12-month project built on work completed during an earlier Daphne project (1999/093/W).  In that project, the sponsoring organization worked with partners to develop a set of ‘good practice’ materials relating to the reception, support and voluntary return of trafficked women. This follow-up project had four major aims:
· Review and refine the good practice model and develop training materials based on it;
· Share and test these materials through a network of partners organized around four regional hubs: Granada/Andalucia; Zaragoza/Eastern Spain/France; Lisbon/Northwestern Spain; Central Spain (each partner’s particular strengths were identified through a participatory evaluation and the network documented these strengths and built response mechanisms on them).
· Hold three regional meetings for development of experience and materials, reinforcement of the network and input from partners in France and Italy who had had longer experience in this field;
· Organize a two-day international meeting: one day of internal discussion and conclusions; one day of public debate including invited participants from countries of origin of trafficked women and Public Institutions: Instituto de la Mujer (Women’s Equality Department, Ministry of Labor and Social Affairs); Servicios Sociales Ayuntamiento de Madrid (City Council, Social services); National Police / Guardia Civil.
