The Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) held its 36th meeting from 18 to 22 November 2019 in Strasbourg.
During the meeting, GRETA adopted final reports on the Czech Republic (first evaluation round) and Monaco (combined first and second evaluation rounds). These reports will be sent to the national authorities concerned and will subsequently be made public, together with eventual final comments received from the authorities.
GRETA also approved draft reports on Austria, Cyprus and Slovak Republic, as part of the third evaluation round of the Convention. GRETA decided to transmit these draft reports to the national authorities concerned and to ask them to submit their comments within two months. The comments will be taken into account when GRETA draws up its final evaluation reports. GRETA draft reports remain confidential until their final adoption.
Further, GRETA discussed the reports submitted by the authorities of Azerbaijan, Luxembourg, the Netherlands and Sweden to the Committee of the Parties' recommendations in the context of the second evaluation round and agreed on issues which should be followed up in the context of the on-going dialogue with the authorities.
During the meeting, GRETA held an exchange of views with Ms Kristine Dupate, member of the European Committee of Social Rights.
