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.
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 fiveMember States participating in the project.
The project is part of theStrategy toward the eradication of trafficking in human beings (2012-2016).
The guidelines and practical tools are available in 7 languages:
