The European Commission’s Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund will support projects that help victims of trafficking gain access to and realise their rights. Projects funded through this call may, among other objectives, facilitate the integration of third-country national victims of trafficking into the host society and provide assistance and support to victims of trafficking, taking into account their specific needs.
Types of actions to be funded include:
- Concrete transnational assistance and support measures for integration into society, taking into account the sex and age of the victims of trafficking in human beings and consequences of the form of exploitation they have been subjected to, including with respect to health and psychological support.
- Measures for the benefit of third-country national victims of trafficking, including education, language training, vocational training, apprenticeship programmes, job placement services, skills enhancement, workplace training, mentoring and entrepreneurship training.
- Initiatives to set up and improve transnational cooperation for the early identification, assistance and support of third-country national victims of trafficking in human beings, for their integration, and within the context of their safe and assisted voluntary return when relevant.
- Initiatives to set up and improve transnational cooperation to facilitate and implement durable solutions for child victims, and in this context, to facilitate exchanges of experiences and best practices.
- Sharing and exchanging experiences, knowledge and best practices on integration of third-country national victims of trafficking in human beings, for their voluntary and safe return, and for durable solutions for child victims, in cooperation with relevant authorities and civil society and other actors and disseminate the results.
Project proposals must clearly focus on third-country nationals who are victims of trafficking in human beings. Proposals should demonstrate how a comprehensive, victim-centred approach will be adopted, concretely presenting the foreseen gender-specific and child-sensitive elements of the implementation at all stages.
