The Critical Role of Civil Society in Combating Trafficking in Human Beings - new publication of OSCE

The purpose of this publication is to outline and analyse the role played by civil society in efforts to address the threat posed by the crime of human trafficking.

The study provides a detailed overview of the role and importance of NGOs in combating trafficking in human beings in the OSCE region as well as of the international legal foundation of their engagement. It should be read as a reference document for the more effective involvement of civil society organizations in preventing and fighting human trafficking at the national and local level. However, the paper does not look into country specific situations, nor does it necessarily represent the views of all civil society organizations.

This publication is based on the findings of a number of consultation meetings, desk-based analysis of legal international framework and policy papers, case studies, and assessment and country visit reports.
