KOK - Key Issues

The focus of KOK’s work is closely linked to the assertion of its goals. KOK does research and bundles current information relevant to human trafficking, exploitation and violence against female migrants. The outcome is transfered to the practice. Additionally, KOK presents the experiences and claims of the practice to politicians, as well as the public. Transfer of knowledge, as well as coordination and networking are some of our key tasks.

Promoting networking between national and international counselling services

  • Supporting the exchange of information and expertise of NGOs on a federal level
  • Organising of trainings and networking meetings
  • Networking and cooperating with international NGOs and human rights organisations

Public Relations and Lobbying

  • Publication of statments, papers and studies
  • Organising conferences, symposia and trainings for different multiplicators
  • Participating in regional, national and international conferences and meetings

Raising public awareness for human trafficking

  • Organisation of seminars  and trainings for staff of public authorities (public prosecutors, police, border patrol, government office for immigrants, social welfare office, etc)
  • Support of counselling centres with negotiations of cooperation (for example with the police)
