18.10.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

Trafficking for sexual exploitation is the most commonly reported form of human trafficking in the European Union. It is a form of gender-based violence that disproportionately affects women. 95% of registered victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation in the EU are women or girls. Trafficking in women and girls remains a structural form of violence against women. This report provides practical and gender-specific guidance to Member States on how to implement the provisions of the European Union legislative act addressing trafficking in human beings, the Anti-Trafficking Directive.
