PROJETO TRAMA

Trama

Projeto Trama was initiated in April 2004 with the objective of confronting trafficking in persons for the purpose of sexual exploitation. This initiative occurred alongside the formation of a consortium of four non-governmental bodies: the Human Rights Organisation Projeto Legal; the Brazilian Institute of Innovation in Public Health (IBISS); CRIOLA (an organisation of Afro-Brazilian women); and the University of Grande Rio – UNIGRANRIO, all based in the state of Rio de Janeiro and with recognition and experience in the defence, guarantee and promotion of human rights.
 
Considering that human trafficking is a violation of human rights and a problem linked to globalisation and social inequality, as well as to questions of gender, race and ethnicity, Projeto Trama’s mission is to confront human trafficking through the affirmation of human rights in a manner that eliminates victimisation and discrimination.

Strategic Thematic Direction

During 2011-13, through our Power in Migration and Work thematic programme, we engaged more directly with the migrant rights and labour rights movements. During 2014-2016 our work will build on the work of previous years; we will continue to push for a human rights based approach in anti-trafficking policies and practices.  We will also deepen our engagement with the issue of migration and labour.

The three thematic strategic issues outlined below are continuations of our work during 2011-13.

ACCOUNTABILITY Increasing the accountability of all anti-trafficking stakeholders involved in the design or implementation of anti-trafficking responses, towards the persons whose human rights they purport to protect.

ACCESS TO JUSTICE Broadening spaces for trafficked persons and migrant workers to practice their human rights by improving access to justice and combating all forms of discrimination that impact women’s ability to exercise their human rights as they relate to trafficking.

POWER IN MIGRATION AND WORK Centring an analysis of women’s power in their labour and migration to better assess migration and labour policies’ impact on women, and to work towards labour and migration processes that reflect migrants’ needs, aspirations and capabilities.
