About us

The Plateforme Traite – Swiss Platform against Human Trafficking is an initiative of four Swiss NGOs, all of which are active against human trafficking. All four advise and support victims of human trafficking. The common basic principles are: respect for human rights and a focus on the needs of those affected (victim-centered approach). Their services and political work is based on these principles.

 

The four organizations work in different regions of Switzerland. Together they cover all three major language regions. Their common goal is to guarantee the protection of victims in all cantons.

 

On the basis of the common basic principles, the Plateforme Traite also works for the rights of those affected and against human trafficking. It develops political actions, lobbying and awareness campaigns.

FIZ Fachstelle Frauenhandel und Frauenmigration

Since the mid-1980s, FIZ Advocacy and Support for Migrant Women and Victims of Trafficking has been working for the protection and rights of migrant women affected by violence and exploitation. FIZ was a pioneer in the establishment of victim protection for victims of human trafficking in Switzerland:

FIZ launched the first specialized victim protection program for victims of trafficking in women with its own shelters. This program offers counseling, support, accommodation, accompaniment in criminal proceedings, and assistance with the integration or return of the victims.

The specialized unit also provides educational and political work, is networked with the relevant actors (police, judiciary, migration authorities, victim support, social welfare) and participates in round tables against human trafficking in 10 cantons.
