This guide was developed with the aim to strengthen law enforcement capacities for preventing and combating trafficking in human beings, facilitate identification of the emerging trends and new forms of human trafficking and serve as a minimum set standard for trainers.
This guidebook calls for a new community policing approach to victim identification that would provide a solid platform for the broader involvement of various public institutions, civil society groups and community representatives in the identification of trafficked persons. This is the Volume 10 in the SPMU Publication Series.
Each issue of the Update contains regional overviews and a special coverage and thematic segments. The special segment of the current issue concerns South Asia, a region which has traditionally been associated with opiates, not synthetic drugs.
The Guidebook is designed to assist OSCE staff dealing with police and law enforcement issues, police practitioners and policy-makers working to develop and strengthen democratic policing, to serve as a reference to internationally adopted standards. This is the Volume 1 in the SPMU Publication Series.
