EU Civil Society Platform against trafficking in human beings. Europe needs to work closer together to help the victims of today's slavery. On 31 May 2013, over 100 European civil society organisations joined forces in the new EU Civil Society Platform against trafficking in human beings. The Europe-wide Platform, set up by the European Commission, will serve as a forum for civil society organisations working at European, national and local levels, in the field of human rights, children's rights, women's rights and gender equality, migrants' rights and shelters. Participants exchanged experiences and concrete ideas on how to best assist victims, expand their networks, and prevent others from falling victims to this crime.
