datACT- data protection in anti-trafficking action

datACT is a joint collaboration of KOK e.V. - German NGO-network against trafficking in human beings - and La Strada International - European network against trafficking in human beings. It aims at strengthening data protection in anti-trafficking responses.

datACT engages in research, training and public debates to promote the rights of trafficked persons to privacy, autonomy and protection of their personal data. The project seeks to encourage governmental and non-governmental stakeholders to establish low-threshold and anonymous counselling opportunities for victims of trafficking.

 

The project started in November 2012 and is still running.
