Description

The National Action Plan against Trafficking in Human Beings is the main document concerning the system of preventing and combating trafficking in human beings in Poland. The National Action Plan is a governmental document adopted by the Council of Ministers, obliging its addressees to perform specified tasks for the purpose of combating trafficking in human beings. The NAP addressees are individual central administration units and other institutions and non-governmental organisations involved voluntarily in activities against trafficking in human beings in Poland. One of the most important implementation tasks included in the new NAP is effective elimination of forced labour. The task remains crucial, there is a need to determine an effective countering THB system, as well as a widespread society awareness-raising on the dangers of abusing persons to THB. In the NAP, an important concern is the development of qualifications and competencies of all system participants/stakeholders who are relevant and responsible for THB identification, protection and support for its victims.
