In 2014, the Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism will be transformed into an Interfederal Centre for Equal Opportunities and a Federal Centre of Migration.
The Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism (the Centre) has published its sixteenth annual report on trafficking in and smuggling of human beings this year. In 1995, the law against human trafficking gave the Centre a new mission: "«to stimulate the fight against human trafficking". Hence, well before the international institutions demanded it, this law actually created a mechanism that acts as a "national rapporteur for human trafficking".
The annual activity report of the Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism for the year 2012 has been published. In addition to this activity report, the Centre will publish an ‘Annual Report on Discrimination/Diversity’ (in May 2013), an ‘Annual Report on Migration’ (in June 2013) and an ‘Annual Report on the Trade and Trafficking in Human Beings’ (in October 2013). In this way the Centre is not only fulfilling its legal duty to report on its activities, but also intends to fuel debate on discrimination, diversity, migration and human trafficking.
The Centre for Equal Opportunities and Opposition to Racism presents his 2011 Annual Activity Report.
This Annual Report provides an overview of the activities, actions and publications of the past year, as well as a description of the objectives, structure and organisation of the Centre.
