Why Blue Blindfold?

Second National Action Plan to prevent and combat human trafficking in Ireland - June 2015

The draft of the second National Action Plan was recently circulated through the existing consultative structures for comment and observations by 31 July 2015. This Plan seeks to build on the work carried out to date and set out strategy for the coming years. Ireland has also had the benefit in recent years of international evaluations of our practices and policies in this area. This Plan seeks to build on areas of strength identified in these evaluations and to improve and enhance our approach where necessary.

See the publications page for a copy of the document. We welcome any comments or views on the draft document. Please submit material by email to or post to Anti-Human Trafficking Unit, Department of Justice and Equality, 51 St. Stephen's Green, Dublin 2.
