23 associations united in the fight against trafficking in human beings

Friday 12 October 2007

Collaboration is essential to launching an effective fight against organised criminal networks given their scale and influence.
The Collective "Together against trafficking in human beings" includes 23 associations, each of which is an expert on the various aspects and forms of trafficking in human beings. While each association is heavily engaged with victims on the ground, they have joined forces in order in to work more effectively by ensuring the exchange of information among members, watching over the whole field, bringing to the public the information necessary for a true understanding of the phenomenon, and by promoting civic awareness. The Collective’s most imortant role however, is its lobbying activites with policymakers in France and Europe. The Collective aims to provide up to date and accurate information in order to encourage the implementation of protective measures for victims and harsher penalties for traffickers.

In May 2006, the Collective asked the French government to ratify the European Council’s Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings. As of September 16, 2007, only seven countries had ratified teh Convention including those of Eastern Europe known as the country of origin for trafficking and transit: Moldova, Austria, Albania, Georgia, Slovakia, Bulgaria. Ten ratifications are required for the entry into force of the Convention.
