The report 'Human trafficking and the economic/business sectors susceptible to be involved in the demand and supply chain of products and services resulting from victims’ exploitation'was developed within the framework of the initiative 'Anti-trafficking stakeholders and economic sectors networking, cooperation to combat the business of human trafficking chain (NET-COMBAT-THB CHAIN). The study is based on the current European and international context: the increasing demand for sexual services, the demand for cheap labour, the desire to make a profit with minimal investment are factors that intensify the activity of the networks of human trafficking. EU Member States must make the necessary efforts to identify and put a stop to the involvement of the public and private sector in the human trafficking or its even indirect complicity. States must encourage dialogue and partnerships with stakeholders in order to bring together economic sectors, NGOs, anti-trafficking experts, in joint actions against human trafficking.
