As ‘modern day slavery’ and one of the many forms of transnational crime, human trafficking demands an international response. The necessity of countering human trafficking comprehensively becomes apparent when looking at crimes committed, the numbers of people trafficked, and the billions criminal networks make by exploiting the vulnerable. As the pertinent legal instrument at the international level the UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress, and Punish Trafficking in Persons can be considered the legal foundation and impetus for regional and national anti-trafficking legislation and implementing measures. This chapter analyses the UN Protocol and its regulations in detail and critically reflects on its implementation.
