Long Abstract: This study relied on anecdotal evidence (due to the absence of any meaningful or reliable statistics on trafficking, either in Albania or host countries) at grassroots level to better determine numbers, recruitment areas, trends and practices. Through discussion groups, questionnaires and over a 100 interviews, the research team consulted victims, teachers, missionaries, villagers, speedboat owners, students, state officials, nongovernmental organisations and international organisations. The intention has been to hear first-hand from those who have witnessed trafficking in the worst affected areas of Albania. This study concludes that trafficking has been and still is widespread in the country and the majority of victims are children, the most at risk groups are children (under 18) from poor and ill-educated families, strong needs of programmes and services to help victims wich must be developed in conjunction with local NGOs and with the support of the government and community.
