The Guidance is the product of two years of consultations between the Global Protection Cluster Task Team on Anti-Trafficking in Humanitarian Action and protection cluster colleagues and partners.
The objective of the Guidance is to introduce humanitarian practitioners to the issue of trafficking in persons in all types of crises involving internally displaced persons. It sets out ways in which humanitarian practitioners working in internal displacement contexts can support and complement States’ efforts to comply with their anti-trafficking obligations under national and international law.
The Guidance aims to assist in the detection, identification, referral, protection and assistance of trafficked persons who may be internally displaced persons (IDPs), part of the crisis-affected population or the host community. It also provides guidance on preventing trafficking, and the relevant partners to work with an anti-trafficking action.
