TOPIC: Human Trafficking, Illegal Migration and Victim Identification on the Spanish Coast..

3. Alathea Enns, BA, Political Science, and Diaspora and Transnational Studies- illegal migration is not truly curtailed in Spain as the Spanish government indicated. 


– Spain has poorly trained authorities that lack proper guidance that will help them to identify and help migrant. They do not have any proper knowledge about how to handle human trafficking and how to help the victims in order to provide assistance and security for them. 

– interview process often goes wrong as 

– Recovery process ought to be extended up to three months instead of three weeks for victims of human trafficking who are trafficked to Spain. 

There is the need to collaborate on identifying and helping victims of human trafficking and there is the need to place strong emphasis on border controls>
