Caribbean Counter-Trafficking Model Legislation and Explanatory Guidelines: A Booklet

IOM´s Caribbean Counter-Trafficking Model Legislation and Explanatory Guidelines is a resource for stakeholders in government and civil society wishing to improve domestic legislation and policy to address the crime of trafficking in persons in the Caribbean. This booklet has two parts, Part 1) the model legislation which upholds the UN Anti-Trafficking Protocol’s standards and incorporates the local and regional contexts, and Part 2) the explanatory guidelines summarizing the group’s discussions, with easy-to-read textboxes and 'best practices' to facilitate implementation, and provides a counter-trafficking legal framework by suggesting provisions and sentencing guidelines.
