The Causes and Consequences of Re-trafficking: Evidence from the IOM Human Trafficking Database
IOM Human Trafficking Database Thematic Research Series, IOM, Geneva , 2010, pages 74
There is very little research conducted into the incidence, cause or consequence of re-trafficking. This research paper, funded by United States Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking (G/TIP), aims to address this gap through an exploratory analysis of known re-trafficking cases in the Human Trafficking Database of the International Organization for Migration (IOM). The report findings reveal that many existing reintegration programmes for victims of trafficking are not effectively tackling the economic realities faced by victims post-rescue. Assistance options should be better tailored to address the complex needs of trafficked persons if re-trafficking is to be avoided.
