The Migrant Protection Platform is proudly joining forces with the Migration Network Hub to launch a joint Call for Practices!

In anticipation of the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons on 30 July 2024, which focuses on the theme “Leave No Child Behind in the Fight Against Human Trafficking”, the Platform and the Migration Network Hub seek submissions of programmes and policies that are relevant to Objective 10 of the Global Compact for Migration (Prevent, combat and eradicate trafficking in persons in the context of international migration) and that address the above-mentioned theme “Leave No Child Behind in the Fight Against Human Trafficking”


The number of people who are trafficked or at risk of trafficking continues to be on the rise. According to the publication The Global Estimates of Modern Slavery, jointly produced by IOM, ILO, and Walk Free Foundation, there are approximately 50 million people in situations of modern slavery on any given day.

Despite significant efforts, the number of children who continue to fall victim to traffickers remains high, largely due to inequitable social, economic, environmental and political factors that foster exploitative and discriminatory practices, with girls being disproportionately affected. According to the IOM’s joint research with Harvard University, no age range, no gender, and no nationality is immune to child trafficking; it is a truly global phenomenon. 


We look forward to receiving your practices. Please do not hesitate to share this call with your colleagues and counterparts!
