Together Against Trafficking in Human Beings

Greta Report on Germany

Greta Report on Germany

GRETA, June 2015, 68 pages

In its first report on Germany published 3 June 2015, the Council of Europe’s expert body on trafficking in human beings, GRETA, calls on the German authorities to improve the proactive identification of victims of trafficking and to ensure that adequate assistance is provided to all victims, including those subjected to labour exploitation. 

In its report, GRETA underlines that several important steps have been taken by the German authorities in recent years – including the adoption of anti-trafficking legislation, co-ordination structures at Federal level and in most of the Länder. However, GRETA stresses the need for a comprehensive national strategy which addresses trafficking for all forms of exploitation and pays particular attention to trafficking in children and trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation.
