National Agency against Trafficking in Persons

One particular institutional set up, with very positive results since its operationalization, is the ANITP within the Minister of Internal Affairs, a multidisciplinary team consisting of police officers, social workers, psychologists and sociologists, governmental entity tasked to ensure co-ordination, among anti-trafficking actors, state and non-governmental ones, develop policies and prevention activities. The Agency have national coverage through its 15 regional centres set up to mirror at a smaller scale the Central Unit, being also composed of police officers, social workers, psychologists and sociologists performing similar tasks at local level. One of the outcomes of Agency involvment was a consistent improvement of the anti-trafficking response, guided by the victim centred approach principle. Programs like transnational referral mechanism, developed within a SEE countries project coordinated by ICMPD, currently implemented by Romanian authorities when Romanian victims are repatriated with agency support or Victims co-ordination during criminal proceedings that facilitated access to justice for an increased number of victims, are some of the measures that contributed to a steady development of anti-trafficking capacity resulting in a decrease of the number of victims in the past years and more successful prosecutions and conviction of perpetrators.


Coordination of anti-trafficking actions at national level

The Government Decision no. 460/2011 designated ANITP to coordinate, evaluate and monitor the implementation of anti-trafficking, victim protection and assistance policies by public institutions at national level, being subordinated to the Minister of Internal Affairs. ANITP runs fifteen Regional Centres to monitor the local implementation of the National Action Plans and to support anti-trafficking activities performed in the ANITP’s area of responsibility. ANITP is also responsible for maintaining the Integrated System for Monitoring and Evaluation of Victims of Trafficking (SIMEV) a central database on victims of human trafficking, and plays a key role in the referral mechanism. SIMEV is an important tool for the evaluation of the phenomenon, in order to identify trends and make them available for stakeholders and ensuring the effectiveness of early action to implement the national strategy against trafficking in persons. ANITP ensures the effective referral of victims to the assistance services providers, as well as monitoring the quality of assistance with which the victims are provided.


National Rapporteur or Equivalent Mechanism

In order to support the fulfillment of Romania’s obligation as an EU Member State, year 2013 represents the end of the transposition process of the Directive 2011/36 on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims, and replacing Council Framework Decision 2002/629/JHA. Common approach of all relevant institutions to adapt national legislation to the provisions of the European law were completed in April 2013 at the deadline required by the European Commission, Romania being one of the first seven MS countries that have managed to fully transpose the directive. In the process of implementing the article 19 of the EU Directive on Trafficking in Human Beings 2011/36, Romanian authorities opted for an equivalent mechanism to a national rapporteur assigning provided task to the ANITP which was set up within the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
