A web resource for combating human trafficking

Government Corner

Governments are the primary responsible actors in the global effort to combat human trafficking. Governments’ efforts to combat trafficking through prevention, protection, and prosecution measures has increased greatly over the last five years. A larger number of governments now recognize that human trafficking is a violation of the human rights of an individual. Governments are creating stricter penalties for human trafficking which may play a role in deterring traffickers from operating. Although there is little evidence of state sponsored human trafficking, officials in many levels government have been implicated in helping to facilitate the trafficking in persons.

The issue of human trafficking has risen to the top of the international political agenda.
