Regional Implementation Initiative (RII)
Regionale Implementierungs-Initiative gegen Menschenhandel
The Regional Implementation Initiative aims at reinforcing the political commitments and legal obligations of the participating countries both to prevent and combat all forms of trafficking in human beings, including trafficking for labour exploitation and domestic servitude – thus supporting and complementing the implementation efforts of the larger European anti-trafficking framework as led down in the Lisbon Treaty and the Action Oriented Paper (AOP).
It will foster cooperation and coordination among all relevant stakeholders including government authorities, international and non-governmental organizations, taking existing good practices and lessons learned into account.
It focuses on a human-rights-based, victim-centered and age-sensitive approach, taking the gender perspective into account.
The Regional Implementation Initiative 2014 is supported by the Austrian Chancellery and the Federal Ministers for Labour, Social Affairs and Consumer Protection, for Women and Public Administration, and of Health, and hosted by the Institute for the Danube Region and Central Europe (IDM).
