    Trafficking in human beings violates the rights and affects the lives of countless people in Europe and beyond. An increasing number of women, men and children are being traded as a commodity, across borders or in their own countries, and trapped into exploitation and abuse. The Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings, which entered into force on 1 February 2008, aims to prevent trafficking in human beings, protect victims of trafficking, prosecute traffickers, and promote co-ordination of national actions and international co-operation. The countries which have signed up to the Convention are monitored by the Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA). The Council of Europe also supports governments in the implementation of the Convention and the recommendations emerging from its monitoring process.
