Germany has not established a National Rapporteur or equivalent mechanism.
However, the federal Criminal Police (BKA) publishes an annual Situation Report Trafficking in Human Beings since 1994. Cases of forced labour investigated by labour inspectors are also included in this situation report. The purpose of the situation report is to provide a compact summary of current information on developments within the field of human trafficking. The report enables police and political decision makers to assess the extent of the problem and plan accordingly. The situation report is also an important basis for the work of the Federal Working Group on Trafficking in Women.
