On the 31st of May 2012 the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) has published its evaluation report on Romania.
In the report, GRETA recognizes the efforts made by the Romanian authorities to tackle trafficking in human beings. Among the measures adopted, Romania has set up the National Agency against Trafficking in Persons, has introduced a national identification and referral mechanism for victims of trafficking and implemented the anti-trafficking legislation.
However, GRETA believes that the Romanian authorities should improve cooperation amongst all anti-trafficking actors. GRETA stresses in particular the need to reinforce the measures to eradicate the causes of trafficking by making it easier the access to education and jobs for groups most at risk.
