This unique publication sets out the legal framework and practice at national level with regard to human trafficking, including the changes brought about as a result of the UK ratification of the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings. Human Trafficking - Human Rights: Law and Practice will be of great use not just to practitioners, advisers and policy-makers working directly with victims of trafficking but also to the non-specialist practitioners who encounter trafficked persons and would like to know how best to help them.

Trafficking in human beings has become a major problem in the UK with an increasing number of people, the vast majority of them women and children, from impoverished parts of the world falling victim to trafficking for the purposes of sexual or other exploitation. The victims of trafficking regularly find themselves in a perilously vulnerable situation, often facing coercion and violence, unprotected by employment law safeguards and fearful of attempting to get help from the relevant authorities.

Human Trafficking: Human Rights: Law and Practice sets out to explain and discuss issues of theory such as definitions of legal terminology but goes further, providing invaluable practical guidance on how to assist victims. Covering both the use of civil law as well as criminal law, it provides helpful advice on how to deal with the identification of victims and how best to use national referral systems.
