Summary
Produced in the context of the Programme to Support the Development of Transnational Referral Mechanisms (TRM) for Trafficked Persons in South-Eastern Europe. The study offers a different perspective on the issue of trafficking in human beings and aims to take the effective transnational referral of victims and the cooperation among anti-trafficking actors a step further. The study gives voice to the hope that by listening to victims and presenting their self-articulated needs and wants, it will be possible to assist and support the many organisations and actors seeking to address human trafficking in South-Eastern Europe and beyond. Considering the specific needs and desires of the victims themselves is a valuable contribution to the successful implementation of the TRM Programme. The study Listening to Victims was written by a team of SEE researchers coordinated by Rebecca Surtees of the Nexus Institute. It is translated and published in the languages of the participating SEE countries as well as in Russian.
