ARTICLE 11 PROTECTION OF PRIVATE LIFE
Open access

This chapter presents Article 11 of the CoE Convention against Trafficking, which deals with the protection of private life. This provision consists of two thematic strands: protection of personal data of trafficked persons and protection of the private life, in particular, the identity of trafficked children, by the media. The chapter starts with a short introduction, generally providing an overview of the main issues covered by the chapter. It then reviews the drafting history or preparatory work of the provision; provides a comparative analysis of this provision in the context of other international or regional legal instruments focused on human trafficking; and finally discusses issues of interpretation.
