Transcrime has been awarded as coordinator project INVERT
Transcrime has been awarded as coordinator project INVERT (Identifying compaNies and Victims in the Exploitation phase to disRupt the financial business model of adult and child labour Trafficking), part of the ISF Programme funded by the European Commission.
This project aims at counteracting the use of legal companies by labour traffickers to exploit victims, helping EU prosecutor offices, law enforcement agencies (LEAs), and judicial authorities, currently facing difficulties in the identification and disruption of these business models and in the dismantlement of the trafficking chain.
This is mainly due to lack of risk assessment tools specifically designed for prosecutors and LEAs to identify victims and companies potentially involved, as well as specialized trainings to increase their capacity building and cooperation. For this reason, INVERT aims at addressing these issues by:
- developing a prototype suite of two risk assessment tools (company-focused and victims-focused) designed with the end-users to detect companies at risk of being involved in adult and child labour trafficking and promptly identify the victims of the trafficking
- providing dedicated training modules for prosecutors and LEAs to update them with a wide-ranging technical-professional training.
Transcrime will lead this consortium, cooperating with Procura della Repubblica di Palermo, the Belgian Federal Prosecutor’s Office, OKRI, Comando Carabinieri per la Tutela del Lavoro, OSDIFE and VSE. INVERT consortium will also count on the external support of the European Labour Authority, the Italian National Labour Inspectorate and the General Police Inspectorate of Republic of Moldova.
