Trafficking in Human Beings (THB) is a serious crime and major violation of fundamental human rights and dignity. Despite recent improvements in combatting THB, there are still gaps and issues that need to be faced. In most European countries, the reception and identification systems, which function as entry points for Third-Country Nationals in Europe, lack gender-sensitive and human-centred approaches and services. Professionals working there rarely have proper training and they may be not able to detect the signs of trafficking and react properly to support the victims.
ACTIVATE is an AMIF (Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund) project that aims to contribute to the eradication of trafficking and support of VoTs, by enhancing the prevention, identification and support mechanisms against trafficking in human beings, with a special focus on Victims of Trafficking for sexual exploitation.
