This document is a collective resource for advocates, victims, and others looking to get in contact with relevant service providers in country of destination or origin.
- 'Based on the need for greater co-operation and knowledge of the activities and services being provided world-wide, the directory has been elaborated as an initial, practical tool to address this need. It endeavours to assist current anti trafficking efforts by facilitating co-operation and sharing expertise between organisations, and enabling them to build partnerships. We hope that this guide will:
- Provide a first stop consultation resource for organisations and their activities. This should allow for more rapid and effective referrals to meet specific needs of trafficked victims (psychological counselling, long-term shelter provision, skills training etc), to facilitate the exchange information and provide guidance for those undertaking research in this area.
- Assist personnel who have identified a victim of trafficking to make contact with relevant service providers in the country of destination or origin.
- Facilitate formation of partnerships / networks for the creation of joint initiatives, projects and programmes within and across borders. Through this, replication of activities should be minimized.
- Provide an overview of the trafficking situation in each country, with background on legislation and outlining the type of services being provided by institutions and organizations in this area.' (iii)
