Rights, Residence, Rehabilitation. A Comparative Study Assessing Residence Options for Trafficked Persons

IOM, Geneva, 2010, pages 137

This IOM multi-country research report examines the legal framework on residence options for trafficked persons and how these legal norms are being translated into practice. Based on a comparative legal and practice-based assessment of the application of the right to residence in four selected countries (Austria, Belgium, Italy, United States of America), the research reveals that trafficking victims are rarely seen as the holder of rights. The report concludes by offering a number of good practices for the anti-trafficking community.
