An EU Civil Society Platform against Trafficking in Human Beings

Over 100 civil society organisations from EU Member States and Croatia are joining forces against trafficking in human beings. In a bid to promote the role of the civil society, and enhance cooperation amongst relevant actors, the European Commission has launched today an EU Civil Society Platform against Trafficking in Human Beings.

The EU-wide Platform 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 will be able to interact, expand their networks and exchange concrete ideas on how best to assist victims and prevent others from falling victims to this crime, as well as become better informed about the EU policy framework.
