Upon accession of Romania on 1 January 2007, certain weaknesses in the security system remained, as e.g. in the areas of judicial reform and the fight against corruption. Such weaknesses could prevent an effective application of EU and national laws, policies and programmes and prevent Romanians from enjoying their full rights as EU and Romanian citizens.
The project has the overall goal to contribute to decreasing THB in Romania. In particular, following the 8 main objectives of the 2006-2010 National Strategy and the new draft National Strategy against Trafficking in Persons for 2011-2015, which focuses on streamlining cooperation in the fight against THB.
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).
