The report aims to assess the current role of Eurojust in the fight against human trafficking and come up with suggestions to further stregthen the support by Eurojust to the Member States.


Summary

The first part of the report presents an overview of the fight against human trafficking in the European Union. According to the statistics, the level of activity against the Trafficing in Human Beings (THB) greatly differs between the Member States.  However, the differences in definition of a prosecution the enormous differences in substantive criminal law and use of these THB provisions, make that bare figures are to be handled with caution.

The second part of the report describes the current role of Eurojust in resolving the indicated problems. The percentage of THB cases of the total Eurojust caseload remains limited, the number of cases in which truly coordinated investigations take place. The problems at national level make that Eurojust is not being used yet to the fullest extend possible. However, the mere existence of the organisation has already achieved that an integrated approach of THB is more easily possible.
