Together against Trafficking in Human Beings

— filed under: , ,

Trafficking in human beings is a serious crime and a gross violation of human rights, classified as a modern form of slavery. The European Commission's website raises awareness of the problem and shows what is being done at EU-level and in the EU Member States to fight this injustice. It is hoped that the website will also help to promote exchange of ideas and cooperation between all organisations and people involved in the fight against trafficking in human beings and the protection of victims. On the 19th of June 2012, the Commission adopted "EU Strategy towards the eradication of trafficking in Human Beings (2012-2016)”. The strategy is a set of concrete and practical measures to be implemented over the next five years. It is based on five key priorities: better identifying and protecting the victims increasing prosecution of traffickers development of child protection systems setting up of national law-enforcement units on human trafficking the creation of Joint investigation teams including national authorities and EU agencies.
