About the Reform

 
 
 
As of 2020, the Human Rights Directorate has been tasked with spearheading the reform on human trafficking and acts as the coordinating body of stakeholders working in this field, bringing together current mechanisms, such as the implementation of the National Action Plan on Human Trafficking (2020-2023), and lead future initiatives, through a multi-agency approach, ensuring the implementation of Malta’s monitoring and reporting functions related to human trafficking through the close collaboration with all the relevant stakeholders.

 

In 2019, the Government has embarked on the commitment to enhance the fight against trafficking in human beings when a public consultation​ was launched to gather feedback on measures relating to Malta’s fight against trafficking from governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and experts working in the field.
 
The 4 P’s of human trafficking are crucial for the safeguarding of human rights. We strive to ensure the effective coordination of the prevention of the crime of trafficking, the protection and promotion of human rights, and the prosecution of perpetrators and to further develop partnerships with parties who may be directly or indirectly responsible to combat this organised criminal activity.
