Summary
Contribution by LSI NGO Platform and GAATW-Europe on the written consultation requested by the European Commission in preparation of the Post-2016 EU Strategy on the Eradication of Trafficking in Human Beings. 

We identify the following three topics that should be considered as a priority in the Strategy: 
- Identification, protection and assistance to trafficked persons, in particular unconditional access to assistance and access to reflection periods and residence permits for trafficked persons.
- Access to justice, in particular the provision of free legal assistance and access to compensation.
- Prevention and addressing demand for all forms of human trafficking and accountability of the private sector.
