Trafficking in human beings, especially women and children, in Africa (second edition)
UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre
In recent years child trafficking has gained visibility as a major violation of children's rights and it is a priority concern for the UNICEF Innocenti Research Centre. Trafficking of human beings affects every country in Africa for which data is available, either as countries of origin or destination. The report looks at information from 53 African countries and provides an anlysis of the patterns, root causes, and existing national and regional policy responses and effective practices. Trafficking occurs when a child's protective environment collapses from such things as conflict, economic hardship, and discrimination. Traditional attitudes and practices, early marriage, and lack of birth registrtaion further increase the vulnerability of children and women exploitation. This second edition is the result of the rebranding exercise being undertaken for some of the Centre's most popular and requested titles.
