The 20-month project is expected to benefit, in the short-term, migration, asylum and anti-trafficking authorities (police, frontline responders, social services, labour inspectors, healthcare workers, NGOs) in 6 EU Member States (Austria, Bulgaria, Greece, Finland, Germany and Sweden). The long-term beneficiaries include trafficked children and adults, and refugees and migrants, including separated and unaccompanied children, at risk of trafficking in the context of the current migration and asylum processes in the EU.

Objective: The main project objective is to support and enable the integration of victims of trafficking among vulnerable migrants and refugees, including separated and unaccompanied children, by establishing a multidisciplinary and transnational approach for early identification, referral, service provision and protection in the context of the current migration and asylum processes in transit and destination countries along the migration route, in particular Austria, Bulgaria, Finland, Germany, Greece and Sweden.
