ADSTRINGO - Addressing trafficking in human beings for labour exploitation through improved partnerships, enhanced diagnostics and intensified organisational approaches" is a transnational project that addresses THB for labour exploitation in 9 countries in the Baltic Sea region of the EU. The main objective of the project is to prevent THB for forced labour through enhanced national and regional partnerships and through improved understanding of the mechanisms that facilitate such exploitation. This main objective will be achieved through a set of specific objectives: the establishment of a dialogue among key labour actors at the national level in 9 countries; the raising of awareness at the regional level among governmental representatives in the Baltic Sea region; research of recruitment practices and roles of recruitment agencies and employers in the exploitation of migrant labour; the development of guidelines for the prevention of exploitation; and through the stimulation of political awareness and dialogue nationally and regionally. Project activities will be carried out over 24 months and will be divided between the project partners, capitalising on their strengths and experiences in combating trafficking in human beings. This project relates to the EU Strategy for the Baltic Sea Region. Priority area 15.5 of this Strategy, chaired by Lithuania and Finland, is aimed at the prevention of THB. ADSTRINGO has been nominated a flagship project under this priority area, thus being of particular importance for the whole Baltic Sea region. Project activities include 3 internal project meetings, 3 national meetings in the 9 participating countries, the participation in high-level Baltic Sea EU regional meetings, baseline research on recruitment methods in relation to THB for forced labour in Estonia, Finland, Lithuania and Sweden, publication of research findings in local languages and in English, the development of guidelines for employers and recruitment agencies in order to prevent THB for forced labour, and the organisation of a conference in Lithuania during the EU Presidency for the dissemination of the findings.
