One important objective of this project was to raise awareness on trafficking in persons for the purpose of organ removal. The crime is not on the radar of judicial and enforcement organizations. One reason is because information and knowledge about the crime does not reach them.
In addition to police forces, our target groups were: transplant professionals, legal experts, representatives of ministries and international organizations, national rapporteurs, individuals of expert groups, organ trafficking researchers, persons working for human rights organizations, and other stakeholders.
Throughout this project, contact information of key stakeholders was listed in a database, managed by Marian van Noord and Linde van Balen. This information was discreetly handled and stored, and used only for the purpose of this project.
All individuals listed in the database received our research findings and other important information.
