Country / jurisdiction

Organization

Council of Europe

Initiative launch date

Description

The compendium of good practices illustrates the positive impact of the Council of Europe’s Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings on law, policy and practice across Europe, in the areas of the four pillars (“4Ps”) of the Convention: prevention, protection of victims’ rights, prosecution, and partnerships. The examples chosen have generally been selected on the basis of GRETA, having welcomed specific measures in the country evaluation reports. Care has been taken to present as wide a selection of countries as possible as well as presenting a balance of practice from countries of origin and destination. It is hoped that this compendium of good practices will highlight the kind of measures that can be taken by States Parties to successfully implement the Convention and will provide food for thought and direction in their future efforts. It is intended as a living document and will periodically be updated in the light of new developments stemming out of GRETA’s monitoring of the Convention.

October 2016

Description

Building on the 2011 UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe adopted Recommendation CM/Rec(2016)3 on human rights and business, a text that provides more specific guidance to assist member States in preventing and remedying human rights violations by business enterprises and also insists on measures to induce business to respect human rights.

The recommendation elaborates on access to judicial remedy, drawing on Council of Europe expertise and legal standards in the field (civil and criminal liability, reduction of judicial barriers, legal aid, collective claims etc.). It puts special emphasis on the additional protection needs of workers, children, indigenous populations and human rights defenders.
