The road(s) to legal residence in the Netherlands for victims of human trafficking

(full text only available in Dutch)

Summary

Many European countries offer a temporary residence permit to victims of human trafficking who are not EU-nationals and who have no residence permit. In the Netherlands, this right to temporary residence is known as the B8/B9-regulation. In 2018 concerns were raised by the Dutch National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children (NR) that victims of human trafficking were (also) making use of the asylum procedure.
The current report investigated this claim to find out if, when, and why victims of human trafficking were making use of the asylum procedure in spite of a special regulation being available to them.
