Started on April 1, 2019 and running for 18 months, INSigHT Action is funded by the European Union, contracted by ICMPD through the Mobility Partnership Facility. Action Coordinator is SSIIM Unesco Chair, while partner include Nigerian and Italian NGOs very active on the ground.
The Action aims to address the theme of human trafficking (HT) from Nigeria to Italy and Sweden, with focus on recent and less explored trends and target populations, in order to assess the effectiveness of prevention, protection and rehabilitation systems in the three countries, particularly with reference to their capacity to deal with Nigerian female children’s needs. It will produce new knowledge on HT, from the most affected areas of Nigeria to relevant secondary and reverse movements across transit routes in Northern Europe and returns to Nigeria. It will also design and implement capacity building and awareness raising schemes targeting relevant strategic stakeholders, particularly Law Enforcement Officers.
