Anti-trafficking training

Anti-trafficking training
Anti-trafficking training

It starts from the Region of Thessaly, in collaboration with the Office

of the National Rapporteur for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, executive training program on human trafficking, victim identification and their protection, victim identification, best management procedures and broader social protection from this illegal activity. The program is expected to be implemented by the Vocational Training Center of the Region of Thessaly and is addressed to officials of the Region and workers in Health Structures, Social Intervention, hosting refugees-immigrants, minors and related organizations in the field of dealing with Human Trafficking.
The program is designed in such a way that the specialized elements can be extracted from the general education and transferred to a variety of settings, private or public sector. As a practice, it can be utilized by other Regions, with minor adjustments to the educational subject and minimal to the administrative part of the educational program.
The evaluation of the educational program aims to highlight the possibilities of the program and to confirm the comparative advantage that the Region of Thessaly will acquire in the specific subject. It is an innovative and comprehensive approach, which will demonstrate the willingness and readiness of the Region of Thessaly to actively contribute to such a sensitive and complex issue.
It is noted that the comparative advantage of the program and the new capabilities acquired by the Region’s executives, as well as the Region as a whole, it is proposed to conduct a separate research in which the impact of the program will be calculated. The impact will be calculated in combination, for incidents officially recognized and dealt with, but also for incidents that meet certain indicators, but are not officially recognized, so that there are indications as to the percentage of the “dark number”, in relation to the officially recognized number victims of human trafficking.
“In a difficult period, we take initiatives, we cooperate and we declare that we are here with a specific program of actions that leads to results” declares the regional governor of Thessaly Kostas Agorastos. “We are working with the Office of the National Rapporteur for Combating Human Trafficking, Mr. Iraklis Moskoff, and all the agencies involved to protect human rights, eliminate fear and strengthen social cohesion. At the same time, the Region of Thessaly finances from the NSRF of Thessaly 2014-2020 the operating expenses as well as the salary costs of the specialized staff employed in 2 hostels for the accommodation of abused women and 3 Counseling and Support Centers in Larissa, Volos, Trikala and Karditsa. We are present with actions and programs” adds the regional governor.

Human trafficking is a serious violation of fundamental human rights, a pernicious and highly profitable form of transnational organized crime. It is therefore prohibited by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights (Article 5.3) and defined as a particularly serious form of organized crime (Article 83 TFEU), linked to immigration policy (Article 79 TFEU). Human trafficking is listed as the 3rd most organized form of criminal activity, after arms and drug trafficking. According to international organizations, there are 30 million modern “slaves” worldwide. Their exploitation is linked to a robust market for products and services valued at astronomical turnovers and unethical profits of billions of euros worldwide. From garment factories to fields, and from dark “studios” to begging unaccompanied children, domestic slavery, forcing them into illegal activities such as drug trafficking, trafficking of babies for illegal adoptions, organ trafficking, etc. .
The perpetrators, taking advantage of the vulnerable social position and dire economic situation of the (potential) victims, with false promises, manage to extract their consent and then transport them to the place of exploitation. However, this organized form of crime is statistically recorded in the category of “rare crimes”, as only a minimal number of victims are rescued and a negligible number of exploiters are tried and convicted.
