Forum réfugiés-Cosi and its European partners, Churches’ Commission for Migrants in Europe, Immigrant Council of Ireland, Italian Council for Refugees, Organization for Aid to Refugees are pleased to invite you to the Final European conference of the EU co-funded project TRIPS – identification of TRafficked beneficiairies of International Protection Special needs.

TRIPS is a two-year project which analyses the integration conditions and the risk of being (re)exposed to human trafficking for beneficiaries of international protection (subsidiary protection or refugee status) in the light of the European legal framework. It is implemented since January 2020 in France, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, and Czech Republic. After obtaining their international protection status, whether or not on the grounds of a trafficking situation, the European Qualification Directive of December 13, 2011, and which entered into force on December 22, 2013, frames the rights granted to beneficiaries of international protection. In particular, it provides that Member States must take into account the situation of vulnerable people in the integration process, specifically including victims of trafficking, after an individual assessment of their situations. In order to study the effective implementation of this provision, the project partners carried out research and addressed the plurality of integration issues - access to social rights, housing, health, training and employment. Thanks to interviews with institutions, civil society organizations and the victims themselves, the partners were able to identify good practices and gaps in the policies and mechanisms in place, and to better understand the specific needs in this area. Moreover, the TRIPS partnership has developed a European toolbox for practitioners including key knowledge on trafficking in human beings and the links with international protection and integration issues, on the identification of the specific integration needs of victims of trafficking benefiting from protection, and guidance on referrals and access to appropriate services. This new toolkit aims to provide guidelines and inspire the development of national toolkits that will include national perspectives and field practices. This Final European Conference will present the main findings and recommendations of the research as well as the European and national toolboxes developed by the TRIPS partnership to improve the identification and the response to trafficked international protection beneficiaries’ special needs in the integration process. The development of these European reports and tools benefited from the contribution and expertise of associated European experts: the French Office for the Protection of Refugees and Stateless Persons (OFPRA), the French Office for Immigration and integration (OFII), the Secretariat of the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) and Amicale du Nid.
