TRANSNATIONAL DUBLIN-RETURN ASSISTANCE NETWORK
To prevent re-trafficking, provide immediate assistance and minimise re-traumatisation in cases of forced Dublin-returns, a International Dublin-Return Assistance Network has been developed. Members of the network are anti-trafficking counselling centres that are willing to receive Dublin returnees who have been pre-emptively connected to them by the anti-trafficking counselling centre of another EU member state. The network is under continuous development. The focus is currently on Italy.
