Under the OSCE Presence in Albania (hereinafter the Presence) Extra-budgetary Project “Action Against Human Trafficking in Albania”, funded by the United Kingdom and led by UNICEF, the Presence will focus on strengthening the capacities of Albanian law-enforcement, prosecutorial and judiciary institutions and thus upgrading the criminal justice response to human trafficking through a multi-agency approach. Based on the OSCE comprehensive approach to combatting human trafficking, the Project builds upon the Presence’s long-standing record of supporting the Albanian lawmakers, law enforcement officials, judiciary, labour inspectors, social services, child protection agencies, civil society and media, to address the multi-faceted phenomenon. The focus of the current Project action is on strengthening the capacities of Albanian law-enforcement, prosecutorial and judiciary institutions; and thus upgrading the criminal justice response to human trafficking through a multi-agency approach. The Project capitalizes on the existing OSCE capacity-building tools and resources, and complements other OSCE ongoing projects in Albania, in the areas of criminal justice response to Trafficking in Human Beings and protection of vulnerable communities and victims of trafficking, especially children.
