The U.S. offered a resolution on human trafficking at the U.N. Commission on the Status of Women (CSW). The resolution - Eliminating Demand for Trafficked Women and Girls for All Forms of Exploitation - attracted 50 nations as co-sponsors and was adopted by consensus.
This was the first resolution of a U.N. body to focus on eliminating demand for human trafficking, with the goal of protecting women and girls by drying up the "market" for victims, particularly for commercial sexual exploitation. With this resolution, the CSW also acknowledged the important link between commercial sexual exploitation and trafficking in women and girls.
The resolution sets an important foundation for future efforts in international fora to address the demand that fuels the growth of human trafficking, particularly for commercial sexual exploitation.
