The present report provides an overview of the current state of affairs in the field of anti- trafficking in each of the four action research sites in the region of the Western Balkans. These locations include Serbia, Kosovo*4, Macedonia, and Bosnia and Herzegovina. The individual action research reports have drawn attention to the identified gaps in the legislation,deficiencies in systemic responses in terms of capacities and NGO-Government coordination, and prevention
activities and awareness of local level structures regarding the existence of different forms of exploitation. In addition the analysis contains a section on recommendations relevant for different actors operating at micro, meso and macro level.
Recommendations are clustered according to the level of governance responsible for tackling the issue thus recognizing the grandiose of HT as a social issue, posing a challenge for different sectors and levels of decision making in our society.
Recommendations are devised on the basis of the previous mapping of best practices in specific intervention areas by
elaborating the potential benefits gained from undertaking the proposed measures as well as pointing towards certain
downsides necessary to be taken into consideration. Proposed measures are exemplified with case studies from the region or abroad.
