The Anti-Human Trafficking Unit of UNODC is glad to announce that the English language version of the Toolkit to Combat Trafficking in Persons.
The Toolkit is based on the premise that the problem of trafficking in persons, whether at the national or local level, can only be addressed effectively on the basis of comprehensive strategies that are based on human rights and that take into account the transnational nature of the problem, the many associated criminal activities, the frequent involvement of organized criminal groups and the profound pain, fear and damage suffered by the victims.
Although the Toolkit offers a few examples of comprehensive national strategies, most of the tools that it offers focus on one specific aspect of the comprehensive response required. Individual tools may be used to develop comprehensive strategies, or to augment or strengthen some of the essential components of existing ones. Many of these tools will need to be adapted to national or local circumstances. None of the tools, by itself, is sufficient to provide an effective response to the problem.
Aims of the Toolkit:
• To increase awareness and to help policymakers in national Governments, criminal justice systems, law enforcement agencies, non-governmental organizations and intergovernmental organizations to understand and respond effectively to trafficking in persons.
• To suggest ways in which national governmental and other relevant agencies and organizations can develop various elements of a comprehensive strategy to prevent and address the problem of trafficking in persons.
• To suggest ways in which States and various relevant governmental and non-governmental organizations can become more able to identify victims of trafficking and offer effective protection and assistance.
• To suggest ways in which States, law enforcement agencies and various other governmental and non-governmental organizations can work in partnership with each other to combat trafficking in persons and to develop effective measures against it.
The Toolkit will soon be available in Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish.
