Inter-Agency Referral System for Return and Reintegration Assistance to Victims of Trafficking (Completed: December 2002)
Since January 2000, IOM and the International Catholic Migration Committee (ICMC) in Albania have implemented the Inter-Agency Referral System (IARS) project for return and reintegration assistance to victims of trafficking. The IARS prsojecsst succeeded in establishing a coordinated operational response capable of assisting up to 30 third-country national trafficking victims per month. Based on this success, the IARS project in 2002 focused on refining shelter, return and reintegration assistance activities for third-country nationals only. This project was completed in December 2002.
