Lithuania: more needs to be done to combat human trafficking

Lithuania has made progress in tackling human trafficking in recent years, but improvements are needed to prevent trafficking for labour exploitation, protect children from trafficking and provide victims with assistance, accommodation, health care and access to compensation.

These are among the main findings of the second evaluation report on Lithuania from the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA).

The report notes developments in Lithuania’s legal, institutional and policy framework for combating trafficking in human beings, the adoption of a new National Action Plan (2017-2019), as well as efforts made to train professionals and raise awareness, with particular attention being paid to children and persons in situation of social exclusion.
