This paper shows the practice of torture as a method used by traffickers to subjugate, control and exploit victims of trafficking in all its forms. Most cases presented here are cases of sexual and labour exploitation including domestic servitude, and show the common patterns of interpersonal violence amounting to torture.
This Guide on Trafficking of Women is the product of three years of work of women who have escaped trafficking. Through an innovative and empowering research exercise, victims of trafficking became agents of analysis and change. Instead of focusing on the tragic side of their experience, they shared among themselves how they managed to escape from trafficking and rebuild their lives. They discussed the existing support mechanisms; they scrutinized the core policy instruments and they eventually summarized their own experience and recommendations in this publication.
