News from Europe: World Day against Trafficking in Persons – 30th of July




Ahead of the World Day against Trafficking in Persons, Gabriele Bischoff, President of the European Economic and Social Committee Workers’ Group, has called for the EU to take strong action against human trafficking, in particular to protect children, young people, women and vulnerable persons.

Human trafficking is a modern-day form of slavery which we cannot tolerate or ignore. It’s time for action to deliver on our promises and for action to implement the strategy for the eradication of trafficking in human beings. This strategy cannot be applied without active support from civil society, which often has direct contact with the victims. Victim support associations need financial resources, as do the public services which have to deal with this unacceptable reality“.
