Study on comprehensive policy review of anti-trafficking projects funded by the European Commission

Project: Research


The European Union has a Strategy to eradicate trafficking in human beings to support the implementation of the 2011 Anti-Trafficking Directive. This project is intended to contribute to the development of the post-2016 Strategy by comprehensively reviewing all the projects funded by the European Commission since 2004 that concern anti-trafficking for the office of the Anti-Trafficking Coordinator. The study is analysing around 300 projects in the context of relevant EU Actions and wider bodies of knowledge.
