Strategies Against Human Trafficking: The Role of the Security Sector

Friesendorf, Cornelius, ed. (2009) Vienna: National Defence Academy and Austrian Ministry of Defence and Sports. 500+ page PDF document is freely available online:

"Millions of people worldwide—men, women and children—continue to be exploited for their labour, for sexual purposes, for their organs. Security sector personnel are well-placed to assist in the fight against human trafficking: by identifying victims; investigating networks; disrupting operations; and prosecuting traffickers. Moreover, trafficking, like many crimes, flourishes where the rule of law is weak, such as in post-conflict situations. Restoring security based on the rule of law can reduce vulnerability to human trafficking and other types of organised crime." (from the Forward, p.5)
