This call aims to fund targeted, practical projects ensuring maximum tangible and demonstrable benefits and impacts for the objectives of the call. The projects should demonstrate the need for the action based on available information, statistics and data sources, feasibility, a sound methodology and practical implementation measures and outcomes. These aspects will be taken into account in the evaluation of proposals. Activities such as the mapping of existing materials should be a very minor component of project proposals.
Proposals should aim at fostering multidisciplinary approach to addressing trafficking in human beings. Proposed actions should take into account the main identified patterns of trafficking and aim at developing skills and knowledge on specific forms of exploitation and changing modus operandi of traffickers as well as on the specific profile of victims with a focus on vulnerable groups, notably women and children.
Trafficking in human beings (THB) is prohibited by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, and defined by the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union (TFEU) as a particularly serious form of organised crime, with links to immigration policy. The crime is driven by high profits and by the demand that fosters all forms of exploitation.
