Council of Europe Convention against trafficking in human organs and explanatory report

Trafficking in human organs is an emerging criminal activity which presents a clear danger to both individual and public health, while breaching human rights and fundamental freedoms. The Council of Europe Convention against Trafficking in Human Organs seeks to protect individual rights by addressing this illegal act from a criminal law perspective. The Convention aims to tackle this crime both at national and international levels by harmonising national legislation, identifying the various offences that constitute trafficking in human organs and laying down the foundation for more efficient cross-border co-operation. It also covers preventive measures and the legal situation of the victims. Wide accession to the Convention is essential in the fight against a crime that is, more often than not, transnational in scope.
