Julia Planitzer and Nora Katona have published their paper on “Criminal Liability of Cooperations for Trafficking in Human Beings for Labour Exploitation” in the November issue of Global Policy.

The paper holds that legal instruments at the European level, such as the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings, clearly define that States have an obligation to establish corporate liability for trafficking in human beings (THB). However, upon closer look at national legislation in Europe, one recognises that the norms within this framework are not being enforced to their fullest extent.
