Trafficking: Study on the gender dimension of trafficking in human beings

Project: Research


The gender dimension of trafficking in human beings was the focus of this project. The Study concluded with recommendations to the EU and Member States to better implement the EU Directive and Strategy on Trafficking by paying greater attention to its gender dimension in relation to: services for victims; EU Home Affairs and Justice Agency practices; reducing the demand for the services of victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation; the system of data collection; and policy coherence and coordination by implementing EU gender equality policies in EU Strategies.
