This chapter reviews the action of the Council of Europe in the field of trafficking in persons. The European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR) adopted by the Council of Europe in 1950 does not explicitly mention trafficking in persons, although its Article 4 does deal with slavery, servitude, and forced labour. Therefore, as recently demonstrated in Siliadin v France, the protection of trafficking victims can be achieved through the implementation of this ECHR provision. Furthermore, the recent adoption of the European Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings can be considered as a major step in the fight against the phenomenon, and there is no doubt that this instrument is the most advanced international convention dealing with this phenomenon. The chapter concludes by analysing the activities of the Council of Europe in the field of trafficking in human organs and tissues.
