Summary
According to Article 3(3) of Commission Decision of 25 March 2003 setting up a consultative group, to be known as the "Experts Group on Trafficking in Human Beings", the Group shall submit a report to the Commission in order to assist the latter with a view to launching further concrete proposals at European level. The Commission intends to issue a communication on trafficking in human beings in 2005. Against this background the draft report of the Experts Group was discussed with interested governments, organisations and stakeholders at a workshop organised by the Commission on 26 October 2004: As a general comment, Terre des Hommes very much welcomes the content of the Group’s Draft Report as it represents an important step towards addressing trafficking in human beings in a integrated approach based on human rights perspectives. Furthermore, through considering children as a specific group that is subject of rights, the Draft Report makes also an important step towards tackling child trafficking not merely as a sub-category of THB but as a specific phenomenon which needs appropriate responses.
