  • Understanding the economics of human trafficking

    Although Europe is one of the strictest regions in the world when it comes to guaranteeing the respect of human rights, the number of people trafficked to or within the EU still amounts to several hundred thousands a year according to the European Commission.

  • Home-based rehabilitation for CVD patients

    Patients who are found to suffer from cardiovascular diseases often have long years of treatment ahead of them and are urged to drastically change their lifestyle. But what is probably the most difficult part of the process is the return home where old habits die hard.
