Over the past decade, the European Union has stepped up its efforts to fight human trafficking strengthening its focus on prevention and victim protection of victims. The adoption of the 2011 Directive on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims (hereinafter the Directive), replacing Council Framework Decision 2002/629/JHA, is the most recent sign of the continued commitment of the European Union in this field. The Directive represents a critical step in addressing human trafficking comprehensively.

The six United Nations agencies responsible for this report; the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the International Labour Organisation (ILO), and the UN Entity for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women (UN
Women), value the efforts and the interest of the European Union and its Member States to end trafficking in persons and the renewed emphasis on the protection of victims. They also welcome the appointment of an Anti-Trafficking Coordinator, whose responsibilities will be critical to the coordination and consolidation of the anti-trafficking efforts of the European Union and its Member States.
