In recent years, European Union countries have seen an unprecedented influx of migrants and refugees across their borders. In 2015 alone, 1,046,599 people irregularly entered EU countries - mainly Syrian, Iraqi and Afghani migrants and refugees fleeing conflicts in their home countries.
For people working in law enforcement, social services, border control and other frontline positions, this situation has been overwhelming. There are simply too many procedures to carry out to process incoming migrants and not enough time.
As a result, many problems that we would normally consider emergencies go unnoticed among migrant and refugee populations, including health problems, safety risks, child safeguarding issues, criminal activities and human trafficking.
In this course, we will focus specifically on the problem of human trafficking among migrant and refugee populations, and what frontline responders can do to quickly and effectively identify and refer presumed victims of trafficking - and prevent abuse.
This course is divided into a number of micro-learning modules designed to be completed in one sitting. If you are new to this subject, we recommend completing the modules in sequence. Otherwise, you may view them in any order you wish and return to them as needed for reference.
- Human Trafficking and Migration
- Types of Trafficking and Related Issues
- how to Identify Presumed Victims of Trafficking
- How to refer presumed victims of trafficking
The development of the course as well as the project TRAM has been co-funded by the European Union's Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund
