Challenges in the Identification, Referral and Protection of Victims
UN Special Rapporteur Reports to UN Human Rights Council
UN Special Rapporteur on trafficking in persons, especially women and children,
Maria Grazia Giammarinaro, recently delivered a report to the UN Human Rights Council. Her report raises an alarm about the fact that results have been very modest regarding identification and assistance of trafficking victims and potential victims in the context of mixed migration movements. She states “current approaches to migration and the identification of victims and potential victims of trafficking are taking place in a context in which poisonous political discourse is leading many countries to adopt anti-migration and even racist positions.” Download the report here.
