Trafficking in human beings (THB) is a criminal phenomenon that continues to stain Europe, with different European states being countries of origin, transit and/or destination. According to EU data, more than 2/3 of the registered THB cases are associated with sexual exploitation, with almost 95% of the victims being women and girls. Moreover, in light of the recent migratory, economic and security challenges, the phenomenon continues to evolve (with current trends in sexual and labour exploitation expected to increase), requiring stronger and coordinated action at national and EU level, and externally.
EU-funded projects and initiatives have mainly focused either on addressing the victims’ basic needs, through protection, accommodation and medical assistance (including psychological support), or on supporting victims during procedures before national authorities via the provision of legal aid. TOLERANT comes to address an existing and significant gap by focusing on the integration of women victims of trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation in the labour market.
