Summary

The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) is an international organisation tasked with promoting innovative, comprehensive and sustainable migration policies. ICMPD specializes in anti-trafficking in Persons(TIP) capacity building, technical assistance, studies and assessments with a track record of over 70 projects worldwide. The expertise includes support for national anti-TIP strategies and NAPs, issuing materials and training law enforcement, labor inspectors, judges, prosecutors, and CSOs, developing guidelines and procedures for NRMs and TRMs, and supporting the design of data collection systems.
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.

Objective

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
