Analysing trafficking in human beings’ trends in the MARRI Participants


Following a successful implementation of last year’s research activity Analysis of the COVID-19 Influence on Migration in the MARRI participants (Albania, North Macedonia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, and Kosovo*), International Advisory Products and Systems (i-APS), Kosovo Advisory Products and Services(KS-APS) and Migration, Asylum, Refugees, Regional Initiative (MARRI) partner up for the second time round!

This year, we will be conducting the Analysis of the trafficking in human beings’ trends in the MARRI Participants, as part the PaCT Project ( Preventing and Combating Trafficking in Human Beings in the Western Balkans) implemented by the MARRI initiative in partnership with GIZ North Macedonia.

The aim of the assignment is to identify and assess the recent trafficking in human beings’ trends and challenges in the Western Balkan region and to develop policy recommendations for the relevant stakeholders, in order to increase the security of the potential victims from the local population and migrants.

We are very excited to have begun this project and continue our collaboration with MARRI RC.
