need to know
The use of internet and digital technologies has significantly increased in the past months marked by COVID-19, with significant changes in our lives. At the same time, two-thirds of frontline trafficking workers have reported an increase in online recruitment by traffickers for the purposes of sexual exploitation online according to the relevant UN Women Guidance.
Despite being on the rise, e-trafficking remains poorly understood and addressed in the receiving countries and there are no effective mechanisms to help professionals understand online recruitment and online exploitation patterns.
Building knowledge on early identification of victims to equip frontline professionals with the tools they need is the first, important step in this fight.
What we want to achieve
How are we going to do this
Joining forces, thanks to a solid multi-stakeholder network with civil society and public authorities, to elaborate and disseminate knowledge on e-trafficking
Creating an online easy-to-use multi-language, multi-user accessible platform on early identification of victims of e-trafficking and e-recruitment
Training frontline staff working in NGOs, local authorities, public and private actors through face-to-face courses and e-learning online modules
Research on frontline operation knowledge on e-trafficking
