Review of the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs Portfolio on Human Trafficking
Since 2000, the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) 1 has supported projects and programmes aimed at combating human trafficking. A total amount of approximately NOK 252 million is allocated and planned for combating human trafficking in the period 2000-20102. This financial support is provided in accordance with the Government's current interdepartmental action plans against human trafficking during the period where MFA has special responsibility for the prevention of trafficking, and the reintegration of victims. In January 2008, MFA requested Norad to conduct a review of efforts against trafficking. The main purpose of the review is to gain knowledge and document the results and experiences that have happened as a result of MFA funded human trafficking efforts. There is also a desire to combine with this an examination of the Foreign Ministry's efforts in the wider international context, and to study, in more depth, the profile of the current project portfolio of human trafficking.
