Based on the general overview offered by the participants and consultants of the regional roundtable, Roma are especially vulnerable to becoming victims of trafficking. This is particularly the case for children, as they fall through the state social protective mechanisms because of, among other issues, a lack of civil registration documents. This is compounded by a shortage of information within the responsible state authorities regarding the nature and occurrences of trafficking among Roma, in particular of children.
