At its 35th meeting (July 2019), GRETA decided to set up an ad hoc working group on strengthening action to combat trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation. The terms of reference of this group included drafting a compendium of good practices in the area of combating human trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation. The purpose of this compendium is to highlight the measures taken by States Parties to the Convention to prevent and combat trafficking for the purpose of labour exploitation, and to provide food for thought and direction in their future efforts.

The compendium is based on country evaluation reports drawn up by GRETA, which reflect the situation in each country at the time of the last evaluation, as well as updated information submitted by the national authorities in response to the Committee of the Parties’ recommendations and to GRETA’s questionnaire for the 3rd evaluation round. Care has been taken to present as wide a selection of countries as possible, as well as to have a balance of examples from countries of origin and destination. The compendium is intended as a living document and will periodically be updated in the light of new developments stemming out of GRETA’s monitoring of the Convention.
