Italy - Urgent procedure report on trafficking - January 31, 2017

The Council of Europe Group of experts against human trafficking (GRETA) has published a report on the implementation of the Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings by Italy. The report assesses the specific situation of forced returns of victims of trafficking and the identification of victims of trafficking among asylum seekers and migrants. GRETA acknowledges the extreme difficulties the country is experiencing due to the unprecedented increase in the arrival of migrants and refugees, and the significant efforts made by the country, with the assistance of international organisations and civil society, to cope with the challenges posed by it. The report, which was preceded by a visit in September 2016, reveals gaps in the detection of victims of trafficking among newly arriving migrants and unaccompanied children.
