EU Projects and Funding
The EU supports anti-trafficking actions through multiple funding streams, both within the EU and non-EU countries and regions.
Descriptions of all EU projects addressing trafficking in human beings, past and present, can be found through a search on the European Commission’s funding portal.
For further details, please read the Comprehensive policy review of EU funded anti-trafficking projects. The Study examined how the projects contributed to the work against trafficking in human beings at the EU level and more precisely to the priorities of the Commission in this area. This study was specifically required by the EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings (2012-2016).
