    As public awareness of human trafficking grows, people are demanding that action be taken to end it. As elected representatives, parliamentarians have a responsibility and the power to ensure that laws and other measures are put in place and implemented to that end. The Handbook is intended to inspire them to enact sound laws and adopt good practices that will strengthen national responses to human trafficking.

    The present casebook fills an important gap. It covers a range of national experience, from judicial decisions on forced and bonded labour in a number of developing countries, through to the more recent decisions on forced labour and trafficking in industrialized countries. In particular, it seeks to illustrate how national court decisions have taken into account the provisions of the ILO’s own Conventions on forced labour, and how this may provide useful guidance for future court decisions. By increasing familiarization with and awareness of jurisprudence on forced labour, we hope also to promote cross-fertilization of experience and dialogue among judicial practitioners, both within domestic courts and between domestic and international courts. To enrich future editions of this casebook, the first of its kind, we also urge readers to share copies of court decisions involving forced labour.

    As globalization accelerates, the range of information and communication technology expands, becoming more accessible to more people, ultimately impacting the way that humans interact. The same is as true for human trafficking as it is for legal business enterprises; technology offers traffickers more creative and complex ways to commit their crimes while at the same time, presenting the global anti-trafficking community with more opportunities to respond to it.

    This handbook seeks to meet the needs of employers’ organisations and individual companies worldwide for guidance on addressing forced labour and human trafficking. It provides practical tools and material for business actors of all kinds, identifying what is and is not forced labour, why it is a significant concern for business, and the actions that can be taken to address it. Employers’ organisations and business have a central role to play in addressing all forms of forced and compulsory labour. Employers’ organisations, in particular, are strategically well-placed to provide institutional engagement and sustainability for programmes that address this abuse; and business involvement is a key to the success of the ILO’s campaign to eradicate forced labour by 2015. This handbook was prepared in close co-operation with the International Organisation of Employers in the context of an expert group initiative on supply chain management of the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT). In a series of seven booklets, the handbook provides guidance on preventive and remedial action, reviews good practice in combating forced labour, and presents information relevant to senior business managers, human resource personnel, sourcing and social compliance staff, social auditors and others.

    The workshop “The Role of the Media” is organized by the Advocacy Section of UNODC. The workshop will take a closer look at the representation of human trafficking and its victims in the media. It will strive to generate a deeper understanding of the factors that have an impact on journalists’ decisions when covering the topic, and to discuss the importance of fair and balanced media coverage of the issue, particularly its victims, in order to avoid them being re-victimized and suffer any undue hardship arising from media interventions in the future. The discussion will also showcase best media practices.

    Initiating Support for Female Victims of Trafficking in Toronto (ISVTT) was a 12-month project aimed at: *building supports for women who are survivors of human trafficking *providing information to front line service providers from various sectors about the issue *creating outreach materials informing survivors of the supports available. The final deliverable of the project was the creation of a report documenting findings and recommendations on how public-sector and voluntary-sector agencies can contribute to and collaborate on support to victims of TIP. The report identifies the learning experienced by the Project Coordinator and the Advisory Committee members, the barriers faced in the completion of the project and the rationale of the interventions recommended.

    Mini action guide designed by the International Trade Union Confederation, with the support of the ILO Special Action Programme to combat Forced Labour. Trade unions in most countries around the world are campaigning for decent work for all.

    The analysis and judgments are based upon CISC Central Bureau’s assessment of a number of domestic organized crime networks that specialized in the recruitment, transportation and coercion of young women into the sex trade. This assessment does not necessarily reflect all organized crime involvement in domestic TIP or the sex trade, nor all female participants’ involvement in prostitution.

    The handbook is a tool for training. It seeks both to inform labour inspectors of the facts and trends of modern forced labour and the challenges before them, and to promote discussion as to how labour inspectorates worldwide could be harnessed more effectively to global efforts against forced labour and trafficking. All over the world, there has been huge investment in training police, border control and other law enforcement agencies in ways to address human trafficking. Yet the key role of labour inspectors, in the eradication and prevention of forced labour including human trafficking, has so far been overlooked. Because these are serious criminal offences, States and other actors have tended to assume that forced labour and trafficking are best dealt with through criminal law enforcement and procedures, rather than through labour law, administration and justice.

    For a universally condemned, but globally evident issue, surprisingly little is known about human traffickers - those who enable or partake in the trade and exploitation of individual human beings. Data and information about how people come to commit trafficking crimes, their respective roles in networks of traffickers, their relationships to other criminals and to victims, and a strong understanding of trafficking modus operandi would help establish means by which actual traffickers can be identified, stopped and prosecuted, as well as preventing potential traffickers from becoming so.

    As with human trafficking for other exploitative purposes, victims of trafficking for the purpose of organ removal are often recruited from vulnerable groups (for instance, those who live in extreme poverty) and traffickers are often part of transnational organised crime groups. Organized crime groups lure people abroad under false promises and convince or force them to sell their organs. Recipients of the organs must pay a much higher price than donors receive, part of which benefits brokers, surgeons and hospital directors, who have been reported to be involved in the organized criminal network.
