National frameworks

A national framework set up to prevent and combat trafficking in human beings should provide a forum for coordination and cooperation among relevant state authorities and non-governmental organizations (National Referral Mechanism). One successful model for such a coordination structure comprises the following institutions: National Coordinator and National Task Force, who continuously shape and review their anti-trafficking strategy through a National Action Plan on both, the legislative and operative level. The main aims of an institutional framework are to:

- coordinate anti-trafficking work on the national level,

- monitor the implementation of the national anti-trafficking strategy, and

- review and adapt the national anti-trafficking strategy.

All partners in such a multi-disciplinary and cross-sector forum take on tasks and responsibilities according to their mandates and meet on a regular basis. (For more information see: NRM Handbook, pp 47 ff)
