ADSTRINGO – Addressing trafficking in human beings for labour exploitation through improved partnerships, enhanced diagnostics and intensified organisational approaches
In the ADSTRINGO project HEUNI partnered with the Permanent International Secretariat of the Council of the Baltic Sea States (CBSS), the Lithuanian Ministry of the Interior and the University of Tartu in Estonia. The aim of the project was to prevent trafficking for purposes of forced labour through enhanced national and regional partnerships and through improved understanding of the mechanisms that facilitate exploitation of migrant labour within the Baltic Sea region. A focused research on recruitment practices and roles of recruitment agencies and employers in the exploitation of migrant labour was carried out in Finland, Sweden, Estonia and Lithuania.
