MetadataShow full item record
With the adoption of Directive 2011/36/EU on preventing and combating trafficking in human beings and protecting its victims, the European Union seems to have adopted a victimcentric focus to combat this phenomenon. This new form of treatment contrasts with what was traditionally upheld by the Union.
This contribution will analyse both the essential elements of a victim-centric approach to human trafficking, as well as the essential contents of the new Directive.
