The EESC is organising a remote public hearing on the revision of the anti-trafficking directive. The input will feed into the its opinion on the issue.
The current directive has been implemented in a fractured manner across the EU as employers and users of the services of trafficked people face different legal consequences. Also, perpetrators continue to act with impunity since prosecution and convictions remain. Therefore, a revision of the directive is necessary.
By including perspectives from policy makers and civil society, the event will explore strengths and shortcomings of the revision.
