The project ‘Assisting Tunisian Stakeholders to Combat Trafficking in Persons in the Context of Mixed Migration’ is funded by the US Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (JTIP). This initiative revolves around two key objectives, which read as follows:
Objective 1: Justice sector actors have improved capacities and resources to investigate and prosecute cases nationally and transnationally
Objective 2: TIP victims have improved access to legal counseling services
In December 2020, ICMPD and the American Bar Association’s Rule of Law Initiative (ABA ROLI) teamed up in order to assist Tunisian authorities and multi-disciplinary anti-trafficking stakeholders to strengthen law No. 61 enforcement to prosecute TIP cases nationally and cross-nationally so that effective victim referral and assistance are provided.
