Target groups

Romanian public and private actors in anti-trafficking of human beings as well as victims of trafficking


The project will build up the intervention capacity of Romanian government actors, target potential victims of trafficking in Romania through public campaigns focusing on most vulnerable groups, develop activities in the field of preventing trafficking in human beings, feed lessons learned from the project into the 2013 National Action Plan and produce recommendations for Victims of Trafficking (VoT).


Achieved results:  

  • Increased capacities within ANITP to understand and manage its tasks with local and international stakeholders (via PCM trainings; begging survey; study visits and workshops in RO and CH; and brochure on identification, referral and repatriation of VoT between RO and CH)
  • Raised awareness among potential victims of trafficking in persons in Romania about the risks of being exploited and trafficked (via Campaign that reached 27'350 people; decrease in Romanian VoT expected )
  • Improved cooperation and enhanced capacity for regional centres to develop future activities (via local seminars)
  • Recommendations for improving VA in RO received for the elaboration of the next NAP as well as the new ANITP VA project.

The project has been completed at an operational level
