GRETA’s 5th General Report: Urgent need to protect children from human trafficking and exploitation
In its 5th General Report, published today, GRETA highlights widespread gaps in the identification and protection of victims of trafficking among asylum seekers, refugees and migrants.
GRETA expresses concern that significant numbers of unaccompanied minors – including child victims of trafficking – go missing shortly after being placed in reception centres, which exposes them to further risks of trafficking and exploitation. GRETA has urged 36 out of 40 European countries evaluated so far to improve the identification of child victims of human trafficking – and the assistance and support which is given to them – in line with their legal obligations under the Council of Europe’s anti-trafficking convention.
