Significant CatalystsRecent Events Contributing
to Increased Trafficking
  • Fall of the Soviet Union in 1991
  • Increased capacity for global migration
  • Increased wealth gap
  • Decline of the Asian Financial Markets
  • (Mid- late 1990s)

Policy Trends
  • Advocacy Direct Services
  • Vital Voices, La Strada, UN Foundation,
  • Human Rights Law Group, UNICEF, Safe Horizons,
  • UNICEF, UN Foundation IOFA, Safe Horizons

Direct Services
  • Lobby for initial legislation at regional,
    national, and international level.
  • Lobby for greater specificity, enforcement, and
    implementation of existing laws.
  • Educate lawmakers, law enforcement, other
    advocates, and the public about trafficking.
  • Prominent Organizations
  • UNICEF, UN Foundation, Human Rights Law Group,
    Vital Voices

  • Protection Project (Johns Hopkins Univ.)

  • Carnegie Endowment
  • Eurasia Foundation
  • Ford Foundation
  • MacArthur Foundation

  • Direct Services
  • Moderately successful in aiding victims on a
    case by case basis. In general direct service
    organizations excel at specific tasks, i.e.,
    translation services. With this in mind, it is a
    travesty that these organizations most often fail
    to coordinate amongst other service providers.
    This lack of potentially synergistic alliances,
    contributes to the current situation of mediocre
  • Advocacy
  • With UN Protocol as evidence, trafficking
    advocates largely successful in encouraging
    trafficking legislation worldwide. Also generally
    successful in implementing regional and
    enforcement-oriented supplemental legislation.
    The present advocacy task of legislation
    enforcement is an arduous battle. However, all
    indicators point to a marked increase in
    trafficking awareness and widespread concern.

Initiative Possibilities
  • 1. Coordinate Foundation/Donor Conference
  • Sponsor Vital Voices Global Leadership
    Institute (Human Trafficking focus)
  • Create organization coordinator position within
    La Strada

Host Trafficking Conference
  • Opportunity to create discussion and
  • Brainstorm effective methods of involvement.
  • Identify potential future program partners.

Sponsor Vital Voices Trafficking Conference
  • Educate regional leaders.
  • Obtain true leverage through empowering
    individuals with practical skills necessary to
    engender change.
  • Involve the DC community.

Create Coordinator Position
  • Establish position in the La Strada organization
    to coordinate activity amongst the La Strada
  • Additionally this coordinator would
  • Harmonize reintegration efforts, conferences
    and advocacy.
  • Generate organized and efficient European
    anti-trafficking efforts.
  • Facilitate greater U.S. involvement in European
    anti-trafficking efforts by functioning as an
    informed contact person.

  • Human trafficking is an egregious human rights
    violation that did not rapidly emerge and will
    not promptly depart.
  • Thankfully, governments, NGOs, and foundations
    are beginning to recognize the necessity of
    trafficking protection, prosecution, and
    prevention. However, increased awareness and
    resources are crucial to successfully eradicate
    human trafficking.
  • The time is ripe for foundations if properly
    focused and coordinated to enter the human
    trafficking arena with confidence that their
    resources will generate substantial and essential
