The Irish government has not established a National Rapporteur.
Ireland has only recently established many new structures for its anti-trafficking work and the creation of a National Rapporteur is not considered at this stage. However, it will be subject to review at the time of implementation of the new EU Directive on Human Trafficking. The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, established in 2008, of the Department of Justice, Equality, and Law Reform has the overall responsibility for coordinating anti-trafficking policies in Ireland.
