The Bakhita Centre for Research on Slavery, Exploitation and Abuse at St Mary’s University, Twickenham is pleased to announce the launch of the report Legal Assistance for Victims of Human Trafficking Across Europe.
The report is based on a study conducted by Diem-Tu Tran and Anta Brachou from the Bakhita Centre. The research was commissioned and supported by the Religious in Europe Networking Against Trafficking and Exploration (RENATE) Group.
The report will be launched online on 15th July 9am-10:30am. The event will feature presentations from Dr Carole Murphy, Diem-Tu Tran and Anta Brachou from the Bakhita Centre, representatives from RENATE, as well as practitioners from across Europe including Albania, Germany, Spain, Bulgaria and Romania.
Acting Director of the Bakhita Centre, Dr Carole Murphy said: “We are delighted to have been approached by RENATE to conduct this timely study that highlights gaps and disparities in accessing legal aid for victims of trafficking in 6 European countries, including England and Wales. We hope to continue to work with RENATE to ensure that the findings from this study are used to implement changes in legal aid assistance for victims, and to ensure that good practice is disseminated more broadly across Europe”.
