Exploring Labor Exploitation: A Shared Commitment to Combat Human Trafficking

Join us in our mission to tackle one of the European Multidisciplinary Platform Against Criminal Threats’ (EMPACT) key priorities – the fight against labor exploitation as part of Trafficking in Human Beings (THB). This crucial endeavor is not just a European concern; it resonates globally as we confront the criminal business form of labor exploitation and human trafficking.

According to the third EU report (2020) on progress in the battle against Trafficking in Human Beings, EU Member States reported 14,145 victims between 2017 and 2018. Alarmingly, 15% of these victims fell prey to labor exploitation. Child trafficking constitutes nearly a quarter of all victims within the EU, underscoring the urgency of addressing this pervasive issue.

In a significant stride towards change, the European Union has recently funded our project titled INVERTIdentifying compaNies and Victims in the Exploitation Phase to disRupt the financial business model of adult and child labor Trafficking.

The project, set to commence on June 1, 2023, and spanning 24 months, aims to combat the financial underpinnings of labor trafficking. With an estimated project cost of €728,755.60, INVERT seeks to make a lasting impact on the lives of those affected by labor exploitation.

Together, let’s work towards a world free from the shackles of human trafficking.
