First workshop of the project "Use of Joint Investigation Teams (JIT) to fight Trafficking in Human Beings in the Western Balkans at the local level"

The first workshop of the project "Use of Joint Investigation Teams (JIT) to fight Trafficking in Human Beings in the Western Balkans at the local level" will take place in Portorož, Slovenia, between 10 and 12 December 2013. 

The project is a continuation of the preceding project "The introduction of the requirements for establishing Joint Investigation Teams (JIT) to fight Trafficking in Human Beings in the South-eastern Europe (JIT THB)", which was concluded with the final ministerial conference in Slovenia in May 2013.

One of the main differences from the recently concluded project JIT THB is that the target group selected in this project is focused on the practitioners from the local/regional level law enforcement authorities and prosecution services. Approximately 20 experts from the Slovenian prosecution and the Police will be participating in the workshop.

The goal of the workshop is to present to the experts the concept of Joint Investigation Team (JIT), existing national and international legislation and the requirements for its establishment, and to explain the role and potential forms of support of Europol and Eurojust. At the workshop a case study will also be conducted. Its purpose is to provide the practitioners with basic practical knowledge regarding the formation of the JIT and its role in a more efficient fight against trafficking in human beings.

The speakers at the workshop are internationally recognized experts in the field of Joint Investigation Teams.
