This report represents the contribution that the Veneto Region, together with the Documentation Centre of the Regional Observatory on Urban Security, has brought to the project WEST – Women East Smuggling Trafficking, which was coordinated by the Region of Emilia-Romagna as part of the EU Community Initiative Programme for transnational cooperation in spatial development INTERREG IIIB CADSES (Central Adriatic Danubian South- Eastern European Space).
