Partnerships against smuggling

Cross-sector coordination is essential for sustainable action against migrant smuggling.

Partners

We work with a number of international organizations who are also involved in the fight against people smuggling, including:

  • Europol
  • Frontex
  • International Organization for Migration
  • United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime

On the ground, we also work with a number of NGOs and social services to ensure migrants receive appropriate care and are protected throughout law enforcement and judicial processes.

Private sector partners play a key role in preventing, identifying and reporting suspected cases of migrant smuggling. For this reason, we have built strong relationships with financial institutions, transportation and online service providers.
