Training on Combating Human Trafficking and Smuggling of Migrants
Human trafficking and smuggling of migrants are crimes that cause grave violations to human rights. For this reason, CCCPA provides training to military, police and civilian (diplomats, prosecutors and justice) officials directly involved in combating human trafficking and smuggling of migrants.

Teaching Method:

The training is based on highly interactive, case-based, and peer learning tools. It adopts a unique integrated multidimensional approach that brings together civilian, police and military professionals.

Learning Objectives:
- Deepening participant understanding of the definitions, root causes and trends of human trafficking and smuggling of migrants - as well as the differences and implications of both.
- Understanding the international obligations in combating human trafficking and smuggling of migrants.
- Understanding the importance of international cooperation in combating transnational crimes such as human trafficking and smuggling of migrants and other associated crimes.
- Promoting best practices through demonstrating African states’ experiences in combating human trafficking and smuggling of migrants.
- Honing effective investigation skills and identification and protection of vulnerable groups.
- Thinking critically about the national approach and obligations whether being an origin, transit or destination state.

Target Group:
The training targets Egyptian and African mid-career officials, with direct responsibilities for combating these crimes. Other beneficiaries of CCCPA trainings include officials from regional and sub-regional organizations, including most notably the African Union (AU), the League of Arab States (LAS), and African Regional Economic Communities/Regional Mechanisms (RECs/RMs).

To conduct these trainings, CCCPA partners with the Egyptian Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Interior, Defense and Justice, as well as the Egyptian National Coordinating Committee on Combating Illegal Migration and Trafficking In Persons (NCCPIM & TIP). CCCPA also works closely with the International Organization for Migration (IOM), the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

This training is funded by the Japanese Government as part of the ongoing UNDP project “Consolidating Peace, Security and Stability in Africa V, 2019-2020”.
