Round-table meeting on combating human trafficking in France

More than 30 representatives of French government agencies and civil society met in Paris on 28 March 2024 to discuss the implementation of the conclusions of the third evaluation report of the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA) and the related Committee of the Parties’ recommendation concerning the implementation of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings by France.

The meeting was organised by the Anti-Trafficking Division of the Council of Europe and the Interministerial task-force on combating violence against women and human trafficking (MIPROF).

The discussions focused in particular on the preparation of a National Referral Mechanism for the identification and assistance of victims of trafficking, victims' access to legal aid and compensation, the application of the non-punishment provision, and the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking cases. France’s third National Plan on Combatting Exploitation and Human Trafficking (2024-2027) was also discussed. 

The event also provided an opportunity to present Recommendation CM/Rec(2022)21 of the Committee of Ministers to member states on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labour exploitation.

France is expected to report to the Committee of the Parties on the measures taken to comply with its recommendation by 17 June 2024.
