Modeling of pre-trial investigation of human trafficking offenses (Ihmemalli)

The underlying reason for human trafficking is the pursuit of financial profit. The Ihmemalli project produces a model for the pre-trial investigation of human trafficking offenses for operational and tactical use by the police. It also forms part of multi-authority cooperation.

The modeling will take the following into account:

  • work-based exploitation
  • sexual exploitation as a form of human trafficking
  • children as a particular target group of exploitation.

The modeling facilitates the clarification and harmonization of police measures across Finland in the pre-trial investigations of human trafficking.

Timescale: October 2022 – December 2023
