ASTRA Newsletter

Having realized that domestic and international public is not sufficiently familiar with the activities carried out in Serbia with a view to combating trafficking in human beings, we have decided to launch ASTRA E-Newsletter. The first issue of the E-Newsletter was released in October 2004, and contained an overview of relevant information on anti-trafficking activities and actors in the Republic of Serbia.

We hope that this comprehensive overview of activities that are taken in Serbia in order to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in human beings will enable better coordination of all actors and help us detect all possible shortcomings and gaps , as well  as indicate to the areas which require additional effort to be made.

ASTRA E-Newsletter is released quarterly in Serbian and English.
