Abstract: 
On March 18, 2015, the European Union Presidency released a revised version of its Handbook on trafficking in human beings. At the Law Enforcement Working Party (LEWP) meeting of September 12, 2014, the Italian Presidency presented a proposal in relation to combating trafficking in human beings (THB), including a questionnaire (doc. 11181/14), which was also discussed during the LEWP meeting of November 6-7, 2014. Based on the Member States' replies to this questionnaire, the Presidency prepared the Handbook on trafficking in human beings - indicators for investigating police forces, which has been revised by the Italian delegation taking into account the Member States' and Commission's comments at the LEWP meetings of December 3, 2014 and February 19, 2015, as well as their subsequent written suggestions.
