Together with the European countries the European Crime Prevention Network is launching a prevention campaign on trafficking in human beings today, 17 October 2019, a day before the EU Anti-Trafficking Day.
The main goals are to step up the fight against this crime by informing:
- (potential) victims that they could be or become a victim of THB
- victims of THB where they can find help, protection and information
- victims of THB that they have EU-wide rights: Assistance & support, Protection, Compensation, Human & labour rights, Reflection period & Residence rights and Reintegration
Trafficking in human beings is a crime that all countries are combating with various actions. It is a crime without borders, that is why European countries, united in the EUCPN and EUROPOL, have joined forces to launch this initiative.
The participating countries are Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovak Republic, Slovenia and Spain. The campaign ‘#YouHaveRights!’ includes a poster, sticker and video. The material will be distributed at hot spots such as airports, borders, embassies, consular posts, public transportation, malls, fuel stations, social media, … .
