Abstract

In this paper the authors analyse the existing legal and institutional framework for combatting human trafficking in the Republic of Croatia. Although the Republic of Croatia started building a legal system for the suppression of trafficking in human beings already in 2002, this matter has still not received adequate attention from the legislator, which is why many issues are left to the executive branch and its protocols. The authors criticize this regulatory approach and propose several possible solutions. They further analyse the recent judgement of the European court of Human Rights in the case of S.M. versus Croatia, which clearly illustrates the problems associated with the prosecution of perpetrators of human trafficking. The last part of the paper studies the new National plan for the suppression of trafficking in human beings and warns of its manifest omission to propose efficient measures and activities for victim identification, prevention of trafficking in migrant children, and protection of victims from re-trafficking or persecution upon return to their country of origin.
