National Co-ordination of the Fight against Trafficking in Human Beings: Recommendations for Poland as a 'New' EU Member State


  • Filip Jasinski


As a world-wide problem, trafficking in human beings now attracts some well-deserved attention after years of political reservation and operational hesitation in European Union Member States. This working paper examines a particular aspect of the EU policy against this phenomenon: its change vis-à-vis the 2004 enlargement to the East. As the topics, actors and activities on the anti-trafficking scene multiply, national co-ordination of the fight against trafficking in human beings is in need of several improvements. The following ideas derive from research performed in Florence, as well as from consultations with anti-trafficking experts and the study of official documents of international organisations and governments. 'Pooling of resources', together with the creation of a national coordinator, are the key concepts of the envisaged enhanced model of Poland's policy.
