On 10 June 2010, representatives from the FRA takes part in a seminar on combating and preventing trafficking in human beings. The seminar is organised jointly by two committees of the European Parliament: the Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) and the Committee on Women's Rights and Gender Equality.

The European Parliament is currently preparing a report about a proposal for a new EU directive on trafficking in human beings, COM(2010)95. The European Parliament will have a codecision role on this proposal. The seminar is organised to provide a forum for discussion in light of these plans.

The FRA contributes to the seminar with concrete suggestions for the proposed directive based on the findings of its child trafficking report published last year.

Live webstreaming can be accessed through the European parliament website.
