Brief Description

On European Day against Trafficking in Human Beings on 18 October 2018,  the Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth (BMFSFJ) published the Federal cooperation concept “Protection and help in cases of trafficking in and exploitation of children”. This concept was jointly developed by BMFSFJ and ECPAT Deutschland e.V. with input from experts and practitioners. The Federal cooperation concept is designed as a nation‐wide set of recommendations for the development of a new cooperation mechanism or for use in expanding existing Länder‐level cooperation mechanisms. The cooperation strategy contains action‐oriented measures and recommendations for organisational and communicative structures which enable ongoing, person‐independent cooperation and collaboration at local level. The Federal cooperation concept is available at‐undhilfen‐bei‐handel‐mit‐und‐ausbeutung‐von‐kindern/129882.
