Patta E., Koffas S., Papadimopoulos I., Sdrolias L., Belias D., (2015), “Human Trafficking in Greece: Revisiting its management and communication policies”, in: Journal of Social Intervention: Theory and Practice, Vol. 3, Is.2, pp. 83-99

ABSTRACT: The conception of the main subject of the research lies in the authors’ interest in human trafficking as a social issue. The paper presents the theoretical context based on a review of the literature along with research results on existing information regarding the phenomenon of trafficking in Greece. Conclusions are drawn by reviewing the policies that deal with trafficking; at the same time the practices implemented in Greece in order to address it are analyzed by concentrating and focusing primarily on the implementation of project-oriented organizational structures and strategic processes, as imperative choices-prerequisites in addressing this major social problem.
