Anti-trafficking Legislation: Protecting Children and Youth

Trafficking of children is a grave violation of their rights, robbing them of their childhood, their well-being, and the opportunity to reach their full potential.

Dr. Susan Bissell, Chief of Child Protection, UNICEF Tweet

The Working Group on Children and Youth from the NGO committee to Stop Trafficking in Persons recommends that Member States implement anti-trafficking legislation that protects children and youth and mandates their treatment as victims and not as criminals.

It asks civil society to campaign for ratification and effective implementation of international legislation such as the Palermo Protocol and the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

It asks Business to be vigilant against the use of child labor in supply chains as well as monitoring suppliers’ implementation on the work floor.
