Contract partner: IOM - International Organisation for Migration - Austria Country: Montenegro Funding amount: € 399.295,00 Project start: 01.07.2006 End: 31.12.2009

Short Description:

Overall goal

In order for the fight against human trafficking to remain effective in Montenegro, IOM proposes to continue meeting the immediate prevention, protection and assistance needs of victims of trafficking (VoT) by supporting the establishment of a specialized facility fit for reintegration programs, by building the capacity of national government counterparts to detect victims of trafficking and to adequately refer these victims for further assistance, and by carrying out further awareness raising activities. This project will be comprised of the following components: 1) Reintegration Facility Support for victims of trafficking, 2) Capacity Building of Government authorities and NGO(s) to fight trafficking and 3) Awareness-raising information campaign. This project builds on past prevention and assistance efforts undertaken by IOM, including the design, production and dissemination of a Training Manual and of a Reintegration Manual, both intended for professionals directly working with VoTs. IOM will devote complementary resources provided by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) to the Reintegration Facility component.
