A response to the issue of human trafficking for forced criminal exploitation in Europe.

The RACE in Europe project is a two-year initiative by Anti-Slavery International and its partners to improve knowledge and responses to human trafficking for the purposes of forced criminal exploitation and forced begging in Europe. Through undertaking exploratory research and by training relevant practitioners on the scale and scope of this type of trafficking, the project aims to ensure that victims are treated as such rather than criminals, provided with appropriate support and that traffickers are prosecuted. The project, funded by the European Commission will run until October 2014.
