The Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings requires States Parties to adopt measures to assist victims in their physical, psychological
and social recovery, taking into account their safety and protection needs. These measures apply to all victims in a non-discriminatory manner - women, men and children, whether subjected to transnational or national trafficking, regardless of the form of exploitation and the country where they were exploited.
Ten years after the entry into force of the Convention, GRETA’s monitoring work shows that there are continuing and serious gaps in the availability of assistance measures
adapted to the needs of victims. GRETA has decided to dedicate a thematic chapter to the provision of assistance to victims of human trafficking in the 8th General Report (covering the period from 1 January to 31 December 2018), published in May 2019.
