Online training “Recognition of victims of trafficking during forced return”
On November 16 and 26, the Ombudsman’s Office organized online training “Recognition of victims of trafficking during forced return” within the framework of the project “Effective implementation of the monitoring and forced return process” Measure 3 “Improvement of procedures for recognizing victims of trafficking in human beings in the forced return process”.
The training was organized in co-operation with the State Border Guard for representatives of various institutions.
The aim of the training was to promote the identification of potential victims of trafficking in human beings during forced return procedures, as well as to strengthen cooperation between the institutions involved. During the training, the International, European Union and national regulations in the field of human trafficking were discussed. The concept and types of trafficking in human beings were explained, as well as extensive and detailed information on the indicators (signs) of trafficking in human beings and the identification of potential victims, in particular, during the forced return process. At the same time, an overview of two possible models of inter-institutional co-operation was provided in situations where one of the institutions has identified a potential victim of trafficking. Recommendations were also made on security measures to be taken to identify a potential victim of trafficking.
A total of 42 participants from the State Border Guard, Orphan and custody courts, the State Inspectorate for the Protection of the Rights of the Child and non-governmental organizations were trained.
