The Annual Report of the OSCE Special Representative and Coordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings to the Permanent Council gives the participating States not only a detailed overview of the activities of the Office of the Special Representative and Coordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, executive structures, institutions and field operations regarding trafficking in human beings, but also an insight into some of the thematic areas the office has explored during the year. Therefore, this Annual Report comprises two different parts. The first part is devoted to OSCE action against human trafficking. The second part (see verso), which builds upon the 11th Alliance against Trafficking in Persons Conference on “Preventing Trafficking in Human Beings for Labour Exploitation: Decent Work and Social Justice”, held on 20-21 June 2011, is devoted to trafficking for labour exploitation and contains three essays written by experts in close cooperation with the office of the Special Representative, highlighting various aspects of this relatively new area of anti-trafficking action. Both parts have a single conceptual framework: an agenda for prevention, which is key today, as we are confronted with the massive scale and increasing trends of human trafficking.

A general overview of OSCE activities is contained in the Executive Summary of Part I. Further and more detailed information about every activity can be found in the respective sections and paragraphs of the Annual Report. Finally, the last chapter of Part I, Challenges and Future Perspectives, intends to show the sense of our direction, and highlight general indications about further work the Special Representative and her team are determined to develop in 2012.
