The Government of Malta remains committed to fight trafficking in persons. As of 2019, the Government has embarked on the commitment to enhance the fight against trafficking by working on a reform that will aim to improve the coordination of current processes and take an active approach in fighting trafficking in all its forms.
The reform on human trafficking was initiated under the Parliamentary Secretary for Reforms, Citizenship and Simplification of Administrative Processes in 2019, when a public consultation was launched to gather feedback on measures relating to Malta’s fight against trafficking in persons. The consultation process gathered feedback from governmental and non-governmental experts working in the field of human trafficking and gathered substantive feedback that will enable the Government to work on a strategy that places victims of human trafficking at the centre of its measures and actions.
As of 2020, the Human Rights Directorate within the Ministry for Equality, Research and Innovation has been tasked with spearheading the reform on human trafficking and will act as the coordinating body of stakeholders working in this field, bring together current mechanisms and lead future initiatives, through a multi-agency approach.
