The assessment analyses the right to compensation for trafficked persons in international law through the lens of a wide range of international standards that relate to combating trafficking, the rights of crime victims, the rights of migrants, labour rights and the rights of victims of gender-based violence. It concludes that the right to compensation mainly consists of a right to claim compensation from the trafficker/exploiter and, in cases of violent crime, a right to compensation from state funds. These standards have also developed the principle that the profits made by traffickers through their exploitative activities should be used to benefit trafficked persons either individually or collectively.
