EMNYTP covers 23 countries, represented by 74 organizations and independent experts, working for youth trafficking prevention via research, human rights educational programs, human rights advocacy and lobbying for youth and immigration policy improvement.
The Network is the only initiative in the region that provides a platform for cooperation, exchange of ideas, support for project development and databases with education resources and experts on youth trafficking prevention.
Its goals are:
To spur a dialogue with youth and human rights organizations, refugee and migrants' groups, and women's and children's rights groups among Euro-Mediterranean Partnership leading to a renewed commitment to upholding the rights of migrants and asylum seekers and a program of concrete action to achive that goal.
To promote collaboration and integration of anti-trafficking activities in the entire Euro-Mediterranean region to improve their long-term effectiveness and sustainability.
To work as an instrument of coordination to encourage and strengthen cooperation among governmental agencies, local authorities, IYNGOs, local youth NGOs and groups from the countries of Europe and Mediterranean in order to streamline and accelerate existing efforts to combat human trafficking.
