Under the OSCE Presence in Albania (hereinafter the Presence) Extra-budgetary Project “Action Against Human Trafficking in Albania”, funded by UNICEF with the support of the United Kingdom, the Presence will conduct the first Albanian language anti-trafficking simulation-based training exercise, with in-house expertise and lead of the OSCE Office of the Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings (OSR/CTHB). This training promotes an innovative approach to capacity building, whereby anti-trafficking practitioners engage in real-time simulated scenarios to identify and investigate human trafficking. During the training activities, practitioners from Albanian law enforcement, judiciary, labour inspection, migration authorities, NGOs as well as lawyers and human rights defenders will work in teams to investigate simulated cases of labour and sexual exploitation among migrants, including child victims of trafficking. The exercises will be built on realistic, expert-developed scenarios, based on the well-established design of previous exercise conducted by the OSR/CTHB.
This training exercise envisages the following activities:
- Development of training scripts focusing on a two-step learning tool which will encompass (a) lectures and (b) a set of role plays for a multi-agency group of participants from interested participating States;
- Implementation of a simulation-based training exercise in Albanian language comprising role plays based on the developed scripts’
- Development of a Handbook for the Albanian that illustrates all the steps in carrying out a simulation-based anti-trafficking training, which will guide the Albanian institutions in carrying this training format independently. Tasks and responsibilities: The OSCE Presence in Albania would like to engage the services of three law enforcement experts/practitioners during the design of the scripts and delivery of the Albanian simulation based training exercise, with specific expertise respectively on: 1) the investigation of human trafficking cases; 2) border and migration management; 3) child protection.
More specifically, the experts will:
• Participate in the 2-day Training of Trainers (ToT) session; • Contribute in updating and consolidating the project simulation exercise matrices in Albanian language (new actions and new injections) taking into account material already developed for the international simulations; • In coordination with the Project Manager, the OSR/CTHB and the practitioners, provide written feedback to the OSCE Presence on the profiles and roles of victims and traffickers for each action and injection foreseen in each simulation storyline, based on a format developed by the Presence; • Provide a detailed description (and reconstruction) of the crime scenes including the environment where traffickers and victims live as well as the places of two story lines, respectively labour and sexual exploitation and the detailed descriptions of the sources of evidence to be found on the spot by the practitioners; • Participate in monthly meetings with the “DIREX” team and interact with professionals of other agencies involved in the simulation exercise (NGO, prosecution, labour inspectorates, international organizations, trade unions etc.) to provide suggestions on the storylines, profiles, injections; • Provide the documents necessary to the Direction of Exercise “DIREX” team of the simulation exercise: police reports, information from databases, excerpts of telephone interceptions, information that Interpol should share on demand by financial experts (practitioners), receipts of money transfer agencies, requests for police international cooperation and updates of maps with the indication of the places where trafficking in human beings is supposed to take place; • Provide examples of templates for preliminary information requests, requests for specific investigations, wiretaps requests, templates for interviews and templates for arrest and search warrants; • Finalize the list of items to be put in the exploitation places (furniture, clothing, accessories, etc.); • Coordinate as member of the DIREX the activities of Law Enforcement Criminal Investigation Unit (CIU) of practitioners ensuring strategic planning and the performance of the tasks of the CIU in accordance with the principles of legality and proportionality. • Co-prepare and conduct the simulation-based training in October 2020 and provide all administrative support in the injections of matrices needed to lead the investigation component; • Provide a final evaluation report with an overall analysis of the investigation of the human trafficking cases in the simulation and with recommendations to be given to anti-trafficking stakeholders in Albania and to be included in the Handbook.
The expert will collaborate closely with the Presence National Anti-Trafficking Officer, the OSR/CTHB and the “DIREX” team to ensure the scripts and training materials provided are relevant and reflective of the training needs/requirements.
