|Number of pages:||126|
This publication is the result of over two years of meetings, discussions through email and telephone and exchange of information and experiences between four projects in Italy, Austria and the Netherlands on the issue of social and labour inclusion of migrant sex workers and trafficked women. This co-operation took place within the framework of the Equal Community Initiative of the European Union. Four projects shared obstacles and good practices and exchanged information on their working methodologies. The results of this co-operation, which was called the “Gender Street project,” are described in this publication. In the first chapter there is a short description of the situation of trafficking in human beings and prostitution in each of the participating countries and also a brief description of each of the national projects. Furthermore, the objectives and context of the co-operation process is explained. In Chapter Two there is an analysis of national legislation, policies and intervention systems in Italy, the Netherlands and Austria in the field of anti-trafficking in human beings and prostitution. This analysis is focused on specific issues such as protection measures, residence permits, access to housing, social and health assistance and access to education, vocational training and employment for the target groups of trafficked women and migrant sex workers. From this analysis a number of obstacles to social and labour inclusion are identified and described for each country. Based on the analysis of the obstacles in the second chapter, Chapter Three focuses on strategies and practices to improve social and labour inclusion. To begin with, the basic working principles that form the basis for the identification and description of good practices from each of the national projects are explained.
