Risk/protection factors, standards and recommendations

Based on the information that progressively was gained in the 4 countries and by adopting a matrix based on the first two set of variables, 16 standards were identified to orient protection and guardianship systems, through a specific analytical approach elaborated by Greece and Italy in their role of leading partners for the project.

Each standard was complemented by a series of indicators which were aimed to help to specify the core information together with some additional specifications which would link each standard to the trafficking and exploitation phenomena under observation.

The approach which followed solicited all partners to question existing analysis on the problems observed in order to allow the emergence of new information beyond the stereotypical vision which often hinders any possibility to new and more useful and realistic ways to relate and interact with certain phenomena. In this perspective the process represented in itself a challenge for each partner, who was asked to actively participate in the common construction of new analysis while the research process was progressing in relation with the different stakeholders and respondents involved at national level.

In order to appropriately sustain this experimental approach, the process was progressively defined and oriented through an intense interaction among the research coordination and partners, with the primary aim to adapt the research protocol to the peculiarities of the different national systems.

After further testing and exchange with the 4 partners, the 16 standards were used to develop a systemic set of recommendations in each country, aimed at improving the national protection and guardianship systems.

The recommendations proposed at the end of each country report represent also the outcome of the process at national level and, together with the methodological approach tested and improved through the research process, they will constitute the basis for analysis which will be formulated at transnational level, with regard to the practical functions of guardians as well as the training process and models which will be developed at national and European levels.
