Novel Strategies to FigHt Child Sexual AbusE and Human TRafficking Crimes and PrOtect thEir VictimS


The number of people, including children, falling victim to human trafficking and CSA/CSE around the world continues to grow, despite increased international attention and resources. In Europe, sexually exploited women and girls make up the majority of human trafficking victims. In this context, the EU-funded HEROES project will explore how to use the latest technological advances and new strategies to prevent and combat CSA/CSE and human trafficking, their investigation and their victims protection. It will develop an ambitious, interdisciplinary, international and victim-centred approach. Its aim is to establish a coordinated contribution with law enforcement agencies to address the specific needs of victims and provide protection. Currently, assistance to victims is often limited by the lack of coordination among stakeholders.
