Poject Launch: Children trafficked for exploitation in begging and in criminality

Project description - Young people in criminality and young people in street begging may be victims of exploitation where the acts they perform or are forced to perform are instigated as a part of organised criminality. Professionals both in law enforcement and child protection face numerous challenges working with these young people.

In this project, national expert teams consisting of an investigating police officer, a prosecutor, a child protection professional and a representative of a child right's NGO will be formed in each participating country. The teams will travel to each country, visit national facilities, and discuss their challenges, experiences and good practices.
