To mark the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, 18 NGOs working in the field of fighting trafficking in human beings and protecting survivors have set up an informal network since 30 July 2020. Although Romania is the European country with the largest number of exploited citizens, so far there has been no network of NGOs to operate in the field.

The RoTIP network aims at effective cooperation with the main actors in the field of human trafficking, at both national and international level, the exchange of THB expertise in order to monitor and improve the public policies and operational interventions, to improve the level of training for public servants and magistrates, to increase awareness of the phenomenon of trafficking in vulnerable groups, to improve legislation to effectively fight organized crime and confiscate the proceeds of crime, to increase the capacity of immediate assistance offered to survivors of trafficking in human beings, taking into account the specific needs of each victim, reducing Romania’s status as country of origin of most victims of trafficking in human beings exploited in Europe and the Middle East.

The network was established at the initiative of the European Center for Legal Education and Research, with the support of the ”Agenția de Dezvoltare Comunitară Împreună” Foundation.
