EU Anti-Trafficking and asylum authorities agree that Trafficking in Human Beings in the context of migration is a growing European safety concern. It requires a coordinated response from state and civil society actors operating in and around the asylum system, working closely with national Anti-Trafficking structures.
The Transnational Initiative Against Trafficking in the context of Asylum Systems (TIATAS) project brings together specialized partners with the expertise, geographic presence, and networks required to positively impact outcomes for victims of trafficking among third-country national asylum seekers, refugees, and migrants.
The action will take place in countries receiving large numbers of third-country national arrivals, representing three major EU entry points in Greece, Italy and Spain, and the main destination country in Germany.
More specifically, TIATAS seeks to:
Reinforce the capacities of key front-line service providers in the asylum system for the early identification and safe referral of victims.
Improve meaningful access to rights and services for VoTs found among TCNs in key asylum and reception facilities.
Share best practices and learning to address transnational AT challenges in the context of asylum with decision/policymakers.
The main expected outcomes include, but are not limited to:
544 front-line staff from state and civil society operators take part in trainings or workshops. Over 50 front-line organizations have access to TIATAS tools, guidelines and resources.
Approximately 195 individual needs and risks assessments are carried out for victims of trafficking among third-country nationals in the context of asylum.
Approximately 193 victims of trafficking are referred to appropriate, trauma-informed services locally, in line with their individual needs, and approximately 77 victims of trafficking are referred to services in another EU member state.
At least 120 decisions and policymakers receive evidence, best practices, and lessons learnt, highlighting contextual challenges of implementing the EU Anti Trafficking Directive in the context of asylum systems.
