Research Papers
Human Trafficking in SA - Root Causes and Recomendations

UNESCO contributes to the global fight against human trafficking by encouraging more effective and culturally appropriate responses based on research and community participation.

The basis of this policy-paper is a combination of qualitative analysis of interviews with stakeholders in 2004-2005 completed with a critical review and analysis of available literature on human trafficking, especially of women and children in Sub-Saharan Africa.

A first version of the policy-paper was presented to a variety of stakeholders during a regional workshop on “Human Trafficking in Southern Africa (Lesotho, Mozambique and South Africa): Root Causes and Policy Recommendations” organized by UNESCO in Pretoria, South Africa on 22-23 November 2005. Based on the comments gathered during the workshop, the paper was further improved through complementary research and analysis in May 2006 - March 2007.

It is intended to serve as a tool for advocacy and awareness-raising to fight human trafficking in South Africa, with concrete recommendations to be implemented by a wide range of actors working to fight human trafficking in South Africa (including the government, international and local organizations).
