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.

Working together with stakeholders the project has produced this manual to assist stakeholders in designing campaigns.
The DemandAT final conference is on May 10th 2017, 9:30-16:30.
