WP 1 – Human trafficking as a criminal enterprise

WP 1 – Human trafficking as a criminal enterprise will create a conceptual map of the human trafficking industry to develop a preliminary understanding of the way in which human trafficking has been defined and framed in Europe. Partners will focus their attention on aspects relating to the evolution of human trafficking, as well as the management system surrounding human trafficking within the criminal industry.

 

WP2 – The act of human trafficking 

WP2 – The act of human trafficking will explore and provide up-to-date information regarding the geographical dimensions of the different phases of trafficking and will also examine the modus operandi used.

 

WP3 – The Traffickers

WP3 – The Traffickers will examine who is the trafficker. We will look at the specific characteristics of individuals involved in the trafficking industry, and their interactions with one another and larger criminal networks, from a sociological, psychological and criminological point of view. This work will also examine former victims who became traffickers.

 

WP4 – The role of technology in Human Trafficking

WP4 – The role of technology in Human Trafficking will analyse how technology is being used in the trafficking of human beings. It will also provide recommendations on how technology can help combat this modern day slavery.

 

WP5 – Trafficking as a global phenomenon: political and social economic aspects 

WP5 – Trafficking as a global phenomenon: political and social economic aspects will place human trafficking in a larger social, economic and political context. It will examine how these external factors have impacted the trafficking industry. It will also contextualise human trafficking within the larger international criminal industry and examine how changes in this sector have impacted the human trafficking industry

 

WP6 – Policy analysis and recommendations

WP6 – Policy analysis and recommendations has two aims. The first aim of this work package is to review European and Member State policies and projects around human trafficking and determine how effective they have been in combating this activity. Second, partners will identify emerging trends in human trafficking and larger social, political and economic trends to forecast what impact they may have on the trafficking industry, and on vulnerable groups. This information will be consolidated and used to provide recommendations for stakeholders.

WP7 – Dissemination

WP7 – Dissemination will include achieving good dissemination of project results at different levels. It will do this through creating a stakeholder contact list and liaising with the expert reflection group. As part of dissemination we will also maintain our website and a social media presence. Of great importance will also be the preparation of briefing papers, dissemination items, the final report and the final conference.

 

WP8 – Project management

WP8 – Project management will ensure the continuous and smooth progress of the project throughout its lifetime.
