Action against economic crime

The Council of Europe is developing standards, monitors compliance with these standards and carries out technical co-operation activities to strengthen the capacities of countries against the abuse and exploitation of human beings.

This includes in particular:

measures against the trafficking in human beings, and
measures against the sexual exploitation and abuse of children.
 
These help prosecute offenders, protect victims and prevent crime.
