Belgrade, 1 December 2013 - The regional web portal Against Human Trafficking is being remodeled and the website will be relaunched soon.
Our idea is to provide platform for human trafficking problem related information from different sources at one place. The general public will thus be provided with a comprehensive insight to situation on national level, as well as with an overview of the situation in the region.
By simplifying the information and making the content available in local languages, our intention is to make relevant information easy to understand, thus bringing them closer to the general public and to potential victims of human trafficking as well.
With this online tool it will be easy to quickly inform the general public in Western Balkan communities on the phenomenon of human trafficking as well as on precautionary measures. Additionally, it will make monitoring and evaluation of anti-trafficking policies in the region much easier - successes will become more visible, as well as shortcomings that need to be addressed. Web portal and its content will thus potentially have a preventive role, but will also perform as an effective and easy-to-use tool for various advocacy initiatives.
The intention is to cover most of the Western Balkans area with research and reports.
