The needs and rights of trafficked and exploited immigrants were discussed, covering also those trafficked specifically for the purpose of labour exploitation. The outcomes of the meeting will serve as a platform for launching a new OSCE research project: “Towards shared responsibility in the Mediterranean region in providing access to justice for trafficked and exploited persons especially in relation to return”. FRA will liaise with the OSCE in order to ensure complementarity with FRA’s own project on severe forms of labour exploitation.
