New Directives on Human Trafficking and Sexual Exploitation of Children

The Commission has proposed the adoption of two new directives – a directive on on combating sexual abuse, sexual exploitation of children and child pornography, and a directive on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting victims.

Both directives will repeal prior framework decisions and will be adopted under the new rules of the Treaty of Lisbon – that means the co-decision procedure – adoption by the Council AND the European Parliament.

As the Commission points out, the two proposals will allow it to monitor and sanction poor implementation of the directives.
