A joint committee hearing on “Trafficking in human beings" will be organized by the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the Committee on Gender Equality and Women's Rights (FEMM) on 26 October 2020 from 17:30 – 18:45 remotely.

This hearing is organised in relation to the joint LIBE-FEMM implementation report (2020/2029(INI)) on Directive 2011/36/EU on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims that represents the main instrument for combatting THB within the EU. This event will represent an opportunity to hear several organisations' representatives and experts' contributions as regards the gaps in the present legislation and in the implementation of this directive and to look into which measures would be needed at EU and national levels to reinforce the application of the Directive. The draft agenda of the event is available below.
