Delighted to have worked on this report on gender-specific measures in anti-trafficking actions. It was based on research undertaken by members of the Immigrant Council of Ireland, the European Network of Migrant Women and us, as independent Irish researchers and was launched in the European Parliament. The report was compiled by the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) in cooperation with the European Commission. The publication of this report as it provides additional guidance on how to assist trafficked women in a gender-specific way. We are delighted to have co-produced the original study upon which this report is based, as it provides much needed practical information as well as an academic angle to the review of the EU measures for gender-specific assistance of sex trafficked women.
