This paper provides an examination of legal challenges faced by OSCE participating States in implementing their political commitments and legal obligations to end trafficking for labour exploitation. It highlights some of the technical or legal steps which need to be taken to ensure effective prosecution of perpetrators.   It also makes clear that, without effective and comprehensive protection of potential and actual victims, prosecution efforts will have limited impact. These protection measures are not limited to guaranteeing the physical and psychological safety of identified victims but extend also to protection of the community in the wider sense, i.e., to ensuring that the labour market and workplace are adequately and effectively regulated and that safe and legal migration opportunities are available.
