Conference on Child Alerting in the EU - Saving the lives of endangered missing children
- Category: News
Why is child trafficking under-reported? According to Europol website - Identifying the victims of trafficking is a challenge in general. Many victims are unaware of their intended exploitation or hesitate in cooperating with law enforcement. Identifying victims of child trafficking is even more difficult as they are often seen as offenders and not victims.
Human traffickers exploit EU migrant crisis to increase child smuggling – EU report
Organized crime is taking advantage of the European migrant crisis to ramp up human trafficking, with an increasing number of children forced into slavery, a fresh EU report warned. In 2013-2014, 15,846 people, including 2,500 children, were registered as victims of human trafficking in the European Union, according to combined data from EU governments and Europol, the European Commission said in the paper. However, EU Migration and Home Affairs Commissioner Dimitris Avramopoulos stressed that the actual numbers are probably much higher because many victims may be afraid or unable to contact the authorities.
