The aim of CAPE is to support relevant national and local authorities in the Baltic Sea Region in combating and prosecuting cases of forced labour and labour exploitation as well as assisting victims of this form of human trafficking. For this purpose, and to provide a better understanding of human trafficking for labour exploitation, research was carried out in Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Sweden.
