Summary
This article focuses on the Trafficking Protocol – in full: United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime – and in particular on the NGO-lobby and the dynamics of the negotiations at the UN International Crime Commission. Both authors attended (part of) these negotiations as members of the Human Rights Caucus, an alliance of NGOs working in the field of human rights, trafficking and prostitutes’ rights. One author has an anti-trafficking background, the other is a sex workers’ rights activist.
