Border Management Programme organised a ToT on Anti-Trafficking in the border regions of Kazakhstan

  • Thematic Component: 4. Improvement of Cross-Border Cooperation
  • Country: Kazakhstan

Border areas often serve as strategic locations for human traffickers due to their geographical proximity to other countries, making it easier to move victims across borders undetected. From 18 to 19 March, the EU-funded Border Management programme in Central Asia (BOMCA 10) organised a training of trainers session on anti-trafficking in the border regions of Kazakhstan.

This programme activity enhanced the knowledge of Kazakh police officers and the teaching personnel of training institutions on the basics of anti-trafficking.   

Also, the Kazakh and European experts undertook a comparative analysis of the anti-trafficking framework in the EU and Kazakhstan, with a focus on border regions.

One of the expected results of the activity is a series of lectures that will be delivered by the ToT participants, to share the knowledge gained within the Kazakhstan’s Ministry of the Interior.
