ICMPD Migration Management Programme in Turkey P-TIP Project

A. Project description

The project “Preventing, Identifying and Combating Trafficking in Persons in Turkey (P-TIP)” is designed to contribute to the further strengthening of the migration management capacity of the Directorate General for Migration Management (hereinafter: DGMM) of Turkey and the other relevant institutions in the country through enhancing their strategic and operational capacity in different areas of combating trafficking in human beings (THB). The strategic objective of the P-TIP project is to combat all forms of trafficking in persons, whether national or transnational. The project aims at preventing trafficking and increasing the protection of potential and actual victims of trafficking. In addition, this project aims to support the development of partnerships among state agencies and non-governmental organisations to enhance a more comprehensive anti-trafficking response in Turkey.
The P-TIP project is funded by the United Kingdom. The International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD) is responsible for its management and implementation.

B. Background

ICMPD has been implementing projects in Turkey, focusing primarily on topics related to migration management, policy development and combating THB, but also providing support to the establishment and capacity development of DGMM and the other relevant institutions/organisations in the country.
Although Turkey has substantially reinforced the legal and institutional anti-trafficking framework, the current response needs to be further strengthened with regard to (a) increasing the capacities to prevent, identify and refer trafficking cases among newly recruited staff of relevant state agencies and (b) contributing substantially to raise the awareness of the general public on human trafficking and its risks. Based on the observations of ICMPD deriving from the previous implementation of the project ‘Preventing, Identifying and Combating Trafficking of Refugees in Turkey’ (PICTOR), as well as the input and recommendations of the relevant anti-trafficking stakeholders in Turkey, specifically DGMM, it was considered that the P-TIP project (as a follow up) will be very beneficial for enhancing the fight against human trafficking in general and also to ensure the sustainability of the outcomes of the PICTOR project. In this vein, P-TIP expands the scope of its action to a) actual and potential victims for all forms of trafficking in persons and b) targets a broader group of relevant governmental institutions and non-governmental organizations dealing with anti-trafficking issues.

C. List of key areas to be covered

 Some of the specific areas that will be covered by the P-TIP project are as follows:

4. Capacity building support (participation and intervention at the trainings and workshops tailored for specific target groups).
