This Handbook for Protocol Officers serves to raise awareness and inform the relevant authorities about how to prevent trafficking in human beings for domestic servitude in diplomatic households, how to detect abuses and how to react to exploitative situations while protecting the rights of the domestic worker. This handbook will increase knowledge about strategies and policies to discourage non-compliance in the employment of private domestic workers in diplomatic households. It will also provide examples of national practices which have proven effective towards those ends.
