About the Speech:
 

In her speech, the EU Anti-Trafficking Coordinator, Dr Myria Vassiliadou, presented the EU legal and policy framework in this policy area and addressed the challenges and achievements in the field of anti-trafficking. The EU considers trafficking in human beings to be a serious form of organised crime and a severe violation of fundamental rights. Dr Vassiliadou further addressed the main driving forces behind trafficking in human beings and the manner in which the European Commission is dealing them. She elaborated on current trends and challenges as well as the importance of focusing on the rights of victims of trafficking in human beings, especially in the context of today's humanitarian crises.
