Commission staff working document- Mid-term report on the implementation of the EU strategy towards the eradication of trafficking in human beings
To address trafficking in human beings, the European Commission adopted the EU Strategy towards the eradication of trafficking in human beings 2012-16. This mid-term report takes stock of how the EU Strategy has been implemented, from early 2012 to the third quarter of 2014.
The report includes work carried out through cooperation between EU institutions, agencies and bodies, Member States, civil society organisations and the private sector. It covers action taken within the EU and in cooperation with non-EU countries of origin, transit and destination.
The report emphasises the Commission’s efforts to implement the EU policy framework on THB in a coordinated manner across all relevant policy fields and actors. It thus includes a section on the steps taken since 2012 under the 2009 action-oriented paper (AOP) on strengthening the EU external dimension on action against THB. The report also includes an annex on the important work of seven EU justice and home affairs agencies to address THB, on the basis of the joint statement signed by the heads of the agencies on the occasion of the EU Anti-Trafficking Day on 18 October 2
