Action against Trafficking in Human Beings

Round-table to support the anti-trafficking efforts in Austria

A round-table meeting on the follow-up given to GRETA’s first report and the Committee of the Parties’ recommendation on the implementation of the Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings by Austria took place in Vienna on 17 May 2013.

The meeting was organised in the framework of the Task Force on Combating Human Trafficking, which is composed of representatives of relevant ministries, agencies and civil society in Austria. The participants discussed progress made since the publication of GRETA’s report on Austria in September 2011 and ways in which the Council of Europe can support Austria in its anti-trafficking efforts.

Austria is expected to provide information of the measures taken to implement the recommendations made by GRETA and the Committee of the Parties by 26 September 2013.
