COALESCE: Legal, Psycho-social and economic empowerment for the integration of women third country nationals (TCN) victims of human trafficking (VoT) for sexual exploitation and abuse (Coalesce Project EC AMIF: 958133).
The COALESCE Project is funded by the European Union Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund and implemented by a partnership consortium comprising the lead partner Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (Cyprus), Cyprus Refugee Council, CARITAS Cyprus, Associazione IROKO Onlus (Italy), Marta Centre (Latvia), European Network of Migrant Women, Immigrant Council Ireland, Solwodi (Germany), Klapeida (Lithuania).
The objective of the project is to provide support to the female migrant victims of trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation in Europe. By providing gender-specific psycho-social, legal and economic support and assistance to third-country national women victims of sex trafficking, the project seeks to develop synergies and complementarities in facilitating needs identification, assistance and support, and improve transnational cooperation among front line professionals and practitioners.
In July 2021 the consortium published a series of Mind the Gap reports, to present a mapping and analysis of needs for the support to and integration of female third country national victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation (TCN VoTs) in six EU (European Union) Member States.
