Date of publication:  01 Jul 2009 Publisher:  European Union Agency For Fundamental Rights Publication type:  Report / Study / Data

Trafficking in human beings is a major problem today, both in Europe and beyond. Even if reliable statistics are not available, it seems clear that every year a significant number of people, largely women and children, fall victim to trafficking for sexual exploitation, labour exploitation or other purposes. Action to combat trafficking in human beings is receiving more and more attention, both at the level of law-making and policy implementation. The European Union the organisation par excellence to deal with cross-border phenomena is well placed to contribute to the fight against child trafficking.
