The following guidelines set out standards for good practice with respect to protection of and assistance to trafficked children. These guidelines are based on international human rights instruments and look at the protection of trafficked children from their identification up to their recovery and integration. They shall be used together with other guidelines and tools focussing on prevention. These guidelines are the result of an extensive process started and developed at the local and regional levels by UNICEF and its partners.
