This Anti-Trafficking Training for Judges and Prosecutors aims at providing a modern training package for practitioners who may be exposed to human trafficking in the course of their duties. The training package comprises a Background Reader, a Handbook and a Curriculum - Training Guide and is fully in line with the latest international and European standards and policy developments in this field. It takes into consideration the latest trends in terms of forms of exploitation practised by human traffickers as well as good practices adopted by European countries to combat the crime. The Handbook has the following structure: Chapter 1 describes the phenomenon of trafficking in human beings. Chapter 2 provides the most basic background on traumatic events and their impact upon affected individuals, especially with regard to victims of trafficking. Chapter 3 describes the international instruments that can be used to investigate, prosecute and adjudicate trafficking in human beings. Chapter 4 describes the core aim of all efforts to prevent and combat trafficking and to protect, assist and provide redress to victims. Chapter 5 describes the criminal proceedings and in this context the rights of victims that must be respected throughout. Chapter 6 is structured according to the relevant instruments for international co-operation to be used by the judiciary with an emphasis on co-operation within the European Union. The emphasis is on judicial co-operation in criminal matters. However, since police co-operation cannot be completely independent from judicial co-operation, instruments of police co-operation are also included in this chapter.
