New Directive on Human Trafficking

The new Directive 2011/36/EU on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims has been published in the Official Journal. The directive repeals the old Council Framework Decision 2002/629/JHA.

The directive adopts a broader concept of what should be considered trafficking in human beings and includes additional forms of exploitation. These include forced begging, exploitation of criminal activities, etc.
