Development of common guidelines and procedures on the identification of victims of trafficking in human beings - EuroTrafGuID Project (2011- 2013)

Latest update : 23/07/2015

Through the EuroTrafGuID project, implemented by Expertise France, between 2011 and 2013  practical tools for the identification of victims of trafficking in human beings and a best practice report were developed and endorsed by the six countries partners to the project (Bulgaria, Spain, France, Greece, Netherlands and Romania). These tools form the basis of a common, harmonised approach to the identification of potential victims of trafficking in human beings.

The practical guide and the three booklets for the identification of victims of trafficking

They are intended for day-to-day use by professionals who are in contact with victims of trafficking. Identification of potential victims at an early stage is a crucial to trigger the legal mechanisms for victim protection, assistance and defence of their fundamental rights and integrity.

At the end of this project, the following measures have been implemented:

  • A capitalisation report of best practices with regard to the identification of victims of trafficking in human beings;
  • Common guidelines and procedures and three practical booklets for day-to-day use for the identification of victims of human trafficking in the six Member States;
  • Training of 62 trainers to use these handbooks and to applicate these best practices.

EuroTrafGuID has received a grant from the Prevention of and Fight against Crime Programme of the European Union as well as co-financing from five EU Member States participating in the project.

The project is part of the EU Strategy toward the eradication of trafficking in human beings (2012-2016).

The guidelines and practical tools are available in 7 languages:
