Webinar: Launch of TRIPS project anti-trafficking report and toolkit
Immigrant Council to launch anti-trafficking report and toolkit
Date/time: Thursday, 9 December 9.30am-1pm
The Immigrant Council of Ireland will launch a report on the special needs of victims of human trafficking in Ireland, who are the beneficiaries of international protection, at an online briefing at 9.30am on Thursday, 9 December.
The report outlines findings from research conducted at a national level, across a number of key areas including victims’ access to social rights, housing, health, training and employment, as well as key recommendations, and a national toolkit.
The report is the culmination of a two-year, pan-European initiative – the TRIPS project. The EU-funded project analysed the integration conditions and risk for victims of being exposed or re-exposed to human trafficking in a number of participating countries, including Ireland.

Commenting ahead of the briefing, Brian Killoran CEO of the Immigrant Council said:
“Victims of trafficking who are seeking or who have obtained international protection have particular vulnerabilities. At the Immigrant Council, we have been exploring the important link between human trafficking and international protection for a number of years. This report is another important step in recognising the discriminatory treatment of some victims of trafficking in Ireland and will help to identify particular areas for improvement in this regard.”
