The first report of the IDMG on human trafficking is now available. The report is an assessment of human trafficking in the UK and work under way to prevent people from becoming victims of this terrible crime.

As well as assessing trends the report also provides an update on the UK government’s human trafficking strategy as well as the UK’s response to a range of reports on anti-trafficking efforts. The IDMG will be responsible for producing an annual report to meet its obligations under the EU Directive on Trafficking in Human Beings as the UK’s national rapporteur equivalent mechanism.
