During the 2019-2020 Danish CBSS Presidency, the Task Force against Trafficking in Human Beings (TF-THB) marks its 14th year of working to combat human trafficking in the Baltic Sea region and launches the 3rd Human Trafficking 2020 – Baltic Sea Region Round-Up.
The report presents an overview of recent developments and emerging trends in human trafficking in the Baltic Sea region as well as the efforts of the CBSS Member States in this field. It provides a thorough overview of new trends, on-going projects and initiatives, legal and institutional frameworks, coordination mechanisms, and statistical data. The report covers the developments during the period from 2016 to 2019 and contains a separate chapter on each of the 11 CBSS Member States: Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Poland, the Russian Federation, and Sweden. The Human Trafficking – Baltic Sea Region Round-up Report 2020 is the third of its kind and it serves as a follow-up to the reports of 2013 and 2016.
