THB Regional Implementation Initiative

founded 2010


The Regional Implementation Initiative aims at reinforcing the political commitments and legal obligations of the participating countries both to prevent and combat all forms of trafficking in human beings, including trafficking for labour exploitation and domestic servitude – thus supporting and complementing the implementation efforts of the larger European anti-trafficking framework as led down in the Lisbon Treaty and the Action Oriented Paper (AOP). 


The Regional Implementation Initiative will foster cooperation and coordination among all relevant stakeholders including government authorities, international and non-governmental organizations, taking existing good practices and lessons learned into account. It focuses on a human-rights-based, victim-centered and age-sensitive approach, taking the gender perspective into account.
