The user's guide and training module on ‘Unified Standard Operating Procedures for Transnational Cooperation on Case Management - Based on the Annex to Bi-National Protocols for the Protection of Victims and Potential Victims of Trafficking with a Special Focus on Children’ for Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and Northern Macedonia is now available in pdf format. It was developed in the framework of the project, ‘Improving the Provision of Services and Awareness to Combat Trafficking in Persons in the Balkans, Albania, Macedonia, Montenegro, Kosovo’, funded by the U.S. Department of State through the J/TiP program.
The Training Module is a practical tool for facilitators to successfully understand and implement the Unified Standard Operating Procedures (USOPs) in Albania, Kosovo, Montenegro and North Macedonia. The training manual should be used with the User’s Guide for the implementation of USOPs. The Guide provides detailed information and step-by-step guidance regarding the implementation of USOPs and the use of communication forms 1– 10 (USOPs are organized in 10 procedural steps, each with its own communication form to exchange information to the other State/party).
Training target groups include state and non-state anti-trafficking stakeholders and professionals involved in the exchange of information among parties: Offices of Anti-trafficking National Coordinators, Contact Points assigned for the implementation of USOPs, potential case managers, as well as state authorities and NGOs directly involved in identifying, assisting, protecting and referring transnational cases of victims of trafficking, potential victims of trafficking and persons at risk of trafficking.
