Description: 

One of the main objectives of the United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT) is to prosecute the criminals involved while protecting the rights and well-being of the trafficked persons. To achieve this goal, effective cooperation between different law enforcement agencies, as well as cooperation between those agencies, is required.

The “Guiding Principles on Memoranda of Understanding between Key Stakeholders and Law Enforcement Agencies on Counter-Trafficking Cooperation” are intended to be a practical tool for counter-trafficking experts from law enforcement agencies to specialized service providers, nongovernmental organizations, trade unions, the judiciary, the prosecution services, faith-based organizations, etc., on how to build Memoranda of Understanding on cooperation between those institutions.
