Human Trafficking Monitoring Committee

Article 19 of Directive 2011/36/EU and Article 29 of the Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings require the establishment of a national rapporteur or equivalent mechanism, tasked with the assessment of trends in human trafficking, measuring of results of anti-trafficking actions, and monitoring of anti-trafficking activities of State institutions and the implementation of national legislation requirements.

In view of these obligations, this Committee shall be tasked with the monitoring of domestic human trafficking trends and anti-trafficking measures, including analysis of the suitability of these measures within the domestic context. The Committee may also issue recommendations for further research or further action against human trafficking.

Moreover, in virtue of its oversight function the Committee shall complement the role of domestic national rapporteur or equivalent mechanism, which role has been taken over by the Human Rights Directorate. Other functions of this Committee include endorsing Human Trafficking Action Plans; overseeing developments in the implementation of the Action Plan and in the implementation of other Human Trafficking related measures; and providing policy direction.​
