Summary

From 19 to 20 September and 3 to 4 October, the Mission delivered two modules of advanced training on the practices used to identify potential and presumed victims of trafficking in human beings (THB) based on early indicators. The training, developed at the request of the Association of Women in Kosovo Police, was delivered to around 50 women police officers of different ethnic backgrounds that have previously attended the two-day workshop on the role of women in preventing and combatting THB, delivered by the Mission in 2016. The training primarily focused on enhancing the knowledge and practical skills of women police officers to combat THB through the victim oriented approach. Participants were familiarized with best investigation practices through real case scenarios that revealed the nature and phases of THB, as well as the elements that make the THB a criminal act. The Mission, committed to further empower women in the police, will continue to provide capacity building support to the women in the Kosovo Police.
