New DemandAT Publications On The Security Sector Role In Addressing The Demand-Side Of Human Trafficking

September 2017

We are delighted to announce the publication of the most recent DemandAT working paper and an associated policy brief examining the role of the security sector role in addressing the demand-side of human trafficking, written by a team led by Dr. Stela Haxhi from the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF). The research underlying the working paper and the policy brief involved desk research, a comparative survey of key security sector actors across Europe as well as case studies of four European countries (the Czech Republic, the Netherlands, Switzerland and the United Kingdom) and was carried out between 2014 and 2017.

Welcome to DemandAT

DemandAT is an interdisciplinary project addressing the challenge of understanding demand for trafficking in human beings and analysing the policy and practical measures that can influence this demand.  The project feeds into recent efforts of European countries to find ways to reduce demand for the products and services provided by trafficked persons within their own economies and societies as a means of tackling trafficking. The project investigates multiple forms of trafficking and forced labour to assess the impact and potential of demand-side measures to reduce trafficking.

The DemandAT project brings together a multidisciplinary team of experts across seven European countries from 1 January 2014 to 30 June 2017.
