Recently, the European Union adopted two important new instruments addressing trafficking in human beings: Directive 2011/36/EU on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims, and the European Commission Communication titled The EU Strategy towards the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings 2012-2016.

As a concrete action to strengthen the role of civil society in addressing the challenges of trafficking in human beings in the EU, the  recently adopted Strategy sees to the establishment of an EU Platform of civil society organizations working on victim protection and assistance in Member States.

The Platform’s main objective is to serve as a forum for civil society to engage at the EU level and exchange experiences in order to enhance coordination and cooperation amongst key actors.

Our organization has been selected to participate in the EU Civil Society e-Platform against Trafficking in Human Beings.
