|Level of Professional Competence Requirements|
Under the Project "Enhancing the capacities and accountability of the law enforcement agencies" the Mission supports the Montenegrin Government in the further development of the security sector in making it a more democratic, transparent and accountable service for citizens.
It has been highlighted in EU reports that little or no progress was reported in regard to cases of Trafficking of Human Beings (THB).This is due partially to a lack of consolidated case-law, the identification and protection of victims of trafficking which remains a persistent concern. Montenegro is recognized as a transit country and to a lesser extent a country of origin and destination for victims of THB.
Progress in this area will depend on a multi-sectorial approach and intensive co-operation followed by the implementation of effective measures in prevention, suppression, and the punishment of perpetrators as well as the protection of the victims. Therefore, the Mission has remained focused on this topic in order to support institutional progress.
In 2016, the Mission facilitated a number of roundtables which included the component of basic THB training for representatives of national institutions that are signatories of the Memorandum of Co-operation on Fight against THB. These include the police, social welfare services, schools, medical centres, judicial agencies and NGO sector. Additional trainings are planned to be organized for the representatives of the above mentioned institutions, on the subject of the methods of identification of victims, prosecution of cases as well as providing assistance and protection to victims.
Objective: The OSCE Mission to Montenegro requires the services of an experienced consultant to assist the National Co-ordination for THB (NCO) within the MoI to enhance the capacity of representatives of various national institutions (signatories of the Memorandum of Co-operation on Fight against THB) identified above. The consultant will work for a period of five (4) days. The consultant will be engaged to work with groups of 10-15 participants within the four Montenegrin municipalities (Berane, Bijelo Polje, Tivat and Podgorica).
