In spite of the positive developments recorded since the first debates on the necessity of their setting up late in ’90, the National Coordinator and the National Rapporteur on trafficking in human beings still face a series of challenges mainly related to their statute in relation with each other or with national institutions involved in the fight against trafficking. Ongoing discussions on their roles and responsibilities are particularly more significant in the European Union member states where efforts to make them operational are advanced. The paper advance a series of viewpoints regarding the way in which the National Coordinator, and the National Rapporteur have been provided for in the most important regional, European and international conventions or other legal instruments. A special attention is paid to the evolution of the concepts in the last 15 years, as well as to issues still pending clarification.
