Action against Trafficking in Human Beings

Round-table to support anti-trafficking efforts in Bulgaria

A round-table meeting on the follow-up to be 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 Bulgaria took place in Sofia on 28 May 2013.

The meeting was co-organised by the Anti-Trafficking Division of the Council of Europe and the Bulgarian National Commission for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings. It brought together some 40 representatives of relevant governmental bodies and non-governmental and international organisations who discussed progress made since the publication of GRETA’s report on Bulgaria in December 2011 and remaining challenges. The meeting will be used to identify ways in which the Council of Europe can further support Bulgaria in its anti-trafficking efforts.

Bulgaria is expected to provide information of the measures taken to implement the recommendations made by GRETA and the Committee of the Parties by 30 January 2014.
