Brief Description

Since the beginning of May 2009, the dancers employed at Liechtenstein bars and nightclubs have been required to participate in an information event at which representatives of the authorities and the Victims Assistance Office inform the women about their legal situation pertaining to work, their stay in Liechtenstein, social and health insurances, and services for victims of human trafficking. This event aims to help prevent potential exploitative circumstances and to give potential victims of human trafficking access to counselling and victims assistance offices. Because of the high rate of turnover in this industry, the events take place each month. At the end of the year, the results of the pilot project will be evaluated in order to decide on whether to continue it.
