In more specific terms, the project seeks to accomplish the following objectives:

  • to support the development the national institutional framework in the respective countries to address trafficking in persons and their practical implementation including victim-centred research, national action plan evaluation and monitoring mechanisms;
  • to support prevention of trafficking in persons and irregular migration through labour market interventions and by informing potential migrants on the risk of irregular migration and the possibilities of legal migration;
  • assist the respective Governments to detect, investigate and prosecute criminal activities pertinent to trafficking in persons;
