Key concepts in a nutshell
Implementing a key action set forth in the 2017 Communication stepping up EU action to address trafficking in human beings (Priority B), the European Commission published Working together to address trafficking in human beings: key concepts in a nutshell.
The document is to be seen in the context of contributing to a coordinated and consolidated Union response against trafficking in human beings. The text does not provide an interpretation of EU law, but is intended to disseminate knowledge about trafficking in human beings by providing the conceptual clarity that is necessary for concrete policies, operational action and funding allocations. The selection of widely used concepts is based on publicly available information on trafficking in human beings published by the European Commission, EU agencies, and international organisations.
