International Humanitarian Training Opportunities: Human Trafficking in Emergencies. July 2021






Human Trafficking in Emergencies



Every year, thousands of men, women, and children fall into the hands of traffickers, in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit, or destination for victims. In a new study released this month by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), the pandemic was shown to have “increased vulnerabilities to trafficking in persons while making trafficking even harder to detect and leaving victims struggling to obtain help and access to justice,” said UNODC Executive Director, Ghada Waly.  
Tomorrow, the United Nations observes 30 July as World Day Against Trafficking in Persons. We encourage you to take action by learning more about this grave violation of human rights. We created this free online training in partnership with The Salvation Army. It provides guidance on identifying the signs of trafficking and supporting survivors. 

By learning how to recognize and take appropriate actions to respond, we can help put an end to human trafficking.
