Summary
This publication contains the main results achieved by the Development Partnerships (DPs) of Headway – Improving Social Intervention Systems for Victims of Trafficking, a transnational project carried out within the EQUAL Community Initiative of the European Union. The DPs of six European countries (Estonia, Germany, Italy, Lithuania, Poland and Portugal) worked together for more than two years to conduct a multi-activity project aimed at the development of tools and standards to improve and strengthen support measures for trafficked persons and monitor – at local, national and European level – trafficking in human beings and the services provided to victims. In order to accomplish the project goals the national DPs carried out 10 distinct activities. The outcomes of most of the activities are presented in this publication and comprise the following themes: Comparative analysis of trafficking studies; Legal aspects: prosecution of traffickers and protection of victims; Illustrations of good practice; From data gathering to monitoring; The Headway on-line database; Project evaluation.
