In the framework of the EU funded Project “Strengthening of a comprehensive anti-trafficking response in Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia”, in March 2010, the ILO Project Office Caucasus has requested the Georgian Trade Unions Confederation (GTUC) and Georgian Employers Association (GEA) to organize grass-roots workshops for Trade Union networks/branches and employers’ organizations and their members respectively.
This activity builds on the results from the outreach activities held in the framework of the previous project, and based on the requests/ recommendation expressed during the sensitization workshops held. The trainings focused on reaching out to members of the ILO Social Partners to consolidate know-how and ensure transfer of knowledge concerning human trafficking and forced labour.
The training curriculum was based on specifics of the national legislation, the expressed needs as well as the ILO policies and international good practices. The trainings served a twofold objective: transfer of know-how as well as support to the existing legal counselling network of the social partners and for collecting feedback and information from members about labour migration and trafficking.
