Action against Trafficking in Human Beings

Round-table to support anti-trafficking efforts in Poland

On 15 April 2014 the Anti-Trafficking Division of the Council of Europe, in co-operation with the Unit against Trafficking in Human Beings of the Ministry of the Interior of Poland, organised a round-table meeting in Warsaw for some 30 representatives of relevant ministries and public agencies, non-governmental organisations, trade unions and research centres.

The meeting took place two years after the first evaluation visit to Poland by the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) and one year after the publication of GRETA’s report. Participants discussed measures taken by Poland to strengthen the implementation of the Convention in the light of GRETA’s report and ways in which the Council of Europe can support Poland in its anti-trafficking efforts.

Poland is expected to provide information of the measures taken to implement the recommendations made by GRETA and the Committee of the Parties by 7 June 2015.
