Virtual networks against human trafficking

 

 

The UN.GIFT.HUB connects with other online portals dedicated to the fight against human trafficking.

 


The Swedish Institute

 

During the last decade the efforts towards combating the modern slavery of human trafficking have become an important topic on the political agenda, both on a national and international level.

In July 2008 the Swedish government launched the first National Plan of Action on prostitution and human trafficking for sexual purposes. A number of authorities, NGO's and other key actors have, in relation to the plan of action and its 36 measures, received public funding to further enhance the efforts toward combating this transnational problem.

The Swedish Institute has, in connection to this, as measure number 31, been commissioned by the Government to spread information on Swedish methods and perspectives relevant to the work on prostitution and human trafficking for sexual purposes on an international basis.
