Doughty Street YouTube Channel - Trafficking law and policy update – the protection of victims of trafficking

Catherine Meredith has today given a presentation to launch the Doughty Streets YouTube Channel – with an update on developments in the field of Anti-Trafficking.


This coincides with the Modern Slavery Bill reaching the report stage in the Lords today, and in view of recent developments in trafficking law and policy.


The presentation looks at the need for the political commitment to put in place law and policy on trafficking – including the Modern Slavery Bill - to be matched by implementation of trafficking obligations in practice, in order to make a difference to victims of trafficking.


It recaps on the special event by the Anti-Trafficking Team in Chambers on 9 February 2015, with the EU Anti-Trafficking Coordinator Myria Vassilidou. It identifies examples of non-implementation of the UK’s trafficking obligations, particularly in view of reports due this year on the UK on the transposition of the EU Directive by the EU Commission and on the Council of Europe Convention Against Trafficking Convention by GRETA. 


The presentation highlights some recent developments in the EU, Council of Europe and domestic law and policy - including key Government reviews and litigation currently underway in the UK and to look out for.


Our Anti-Trafficking Team  will be giving training on the Act when it comes into force as well as further events and seminars in due course.
