VIENNA, 28 April 2014 – ICMPD's Competence Centre for Trafficking in Human Beings has just published the research report Current Anti-trafficking Response in Turkey and the Way Forward. The report is part of the project 'Enhanced Identification and Protection of Trafficked Persons in Turkey (IPT)'. It analyses the current situation of trafficking in human beings in Turkey, and summarises the challenges practitioners and policymakers face in fighting this crime. Moreover, the report provides practical recommendations for the way forward in ensuring a comprehensive national anti-trafficking response. The report can be downloaded in English and in Turkish.

Under the same project, ICMPD has published the Train-the-Trainer Curriculum on the Identification, Referral and Assistance of Trafficked Persons. The curriculum is a guide for any training or work session on THB with a focus on understanding the scope of the topic, as well as relevant issues around multi-disciplinary cooperation for the successful identification and referral of victims of trafficking. Furthermore, the training sessions provide national actors step-by-step guidance on how to establish a functioning and sustainable national referral system based on standard operation procedures for the identification and referral of trafficked persons, in full compliance with human rights standards, and based on a participatory and multidisciplinary approach that involves all relevant institutions and stakeholders. The curriculum can be downloaded in English and in Turkish.
