How are children (potential) victim of trafficking identified and protected in Belgium? What is the role of guardians and lawyers? After an in-depth desk-research, ECPAT Belgium interviewed around 20 field workers to try to answer these questions. The study concludes with recommendations for various stakeholders.

The study is based on a national research carried out in the framework of the EU-funded ReACT project (Reinforcing Assistance to Child victims of Trafficking), conducted in partnership with ECPAT France, ECPAT Germany ECPAT Netherlands and ECPAT UK.
