Chapter 3 examines the complicated nature of the European legal system in the area of human trafficking and how Council of Europe and European Union legal instruments have resulted in some confusion as to their implementation in the UK. Recognising that the legal provisions affecting the situation of human trafficking in European member states and regions can be a case study in federalism, the chapter looks at the various layers of legal protections and why there can be, at times, failures in the complex systems and processes. It argues that the use of legislation to inform practice guidelines and procedures can lead to unclear processes in practice, especially when concepts of ‘appropriate’ or ‘minimum’ levels of support / intervention are not clearly defined.
