In accordance with her mandate, the Special Representative encourages governments of participating States to place combating all forms of human trafficking high on their political agenda. Country visits serve to establish a direct and constructive dialogue with participating States on anti-trafficking policy. During country visits, the Special Representative holds consultations with government authorities, parliamentarians, and representatives of the judiciary and NGOs on human trafficking issues and aims to share knowledge and good practices.
After each visit, the Special Representative writes a country report, underlining promising practices of the country, as well as challenges discussed and areas where anti-trafficking policy could be enhanced. The report contains a few concrete and focused recommendations to support the country in enhancing the implementation of OSCE anti-trafficking commitments. If the country agrees, the report is made public, with a response from the Government, where given.
