Dear Visitor,

Welcome to the website of the project “Referral of and assistance for victims of human trafficking in Europe” (RAVOT-EUR). The project is implemented by Belgium, the Netherlands and Hungary in close cooperation.

This website is designed as a resource manual for social workers, legal experts, law enforcement authorities, victim support services, civil servants and other service providers active in the fight against human trafficking. The aim of the RAVOT-EUR project is to establish a transnational referral mechanism among the three countries, with a special focus on victims of Hungarian origin who have been exploited in Belgium and the Netherlands. Our goal is to open new avenues for information-sharing, coordination and partnership among governmental and non-governmental actors. With this we hope to set up an effective transnational cooperation, to assist Hungarian victims and facilitate their social inclusion and reintegration, whether they wish to return to their home or start a new life abroad. 

Using the website, the experts involved can get in touch with one another and can access information in the database. In addition, visitors can read about the phenomenon of human trafficking, the extent these three countries are affected by human trafficking and find useful links and best practices as well.

We hope you will find the information provided here helpful and practical. Moreover, we expect this website to help you contribute to the global fight against trafficking in human beings.
