Estimating the prevalence of trafficking in persons in Norway using the Multiple Systems Estimation methodology

The project will test a methodology to estimate the extent of human trafficking in Norway and contribute to better regional and international estimates by participating in the work of the UN Office on Drugs and Organised Crime (UNODC) to develop Multiple Systems Estimation (MSE) in different countries and regions. There are currently no such reliable estimates of human trafficking in Norway and there is a high demand for reliable statistics in this area. MSE is a variant of the capture-recapture method, which UNODC has adapted to data on human trafficking.

Workplace qualifications for older employees

The pilot project will map the possibilities for implementing a main project that looks at the competence provisions in the collective agreements and their significance for seniors' participation in lifelong learning.
