In recent years child trafficking has gained visibility as a major violation of children's rights and it is a priority concern for the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre (IRC). This research reaffirms this priority. The study builds upon previous UNICEF IRC work on child trafficking in eight countries in West Africa. It is framed by the important international normative framework agreed upon by the international community, particularly the Convention on the Rights of the Child and its Optional Protocols, the Palermo Protocol to the UN Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the ILO Convention 182 on the Worst Forms of Child Labour.
