Trafficking in Persons in South Sudan: Prevalence, Challenges and Responses.

This report is the product of an extensive consultative process. It is the first of its kind in the country and aims to provide a comprehensive, in-depth study into trafficking vulnerabilities, current and future responses to prevent human trafficking, protect victims, and prosecute those who organize and benefit from this crime. This report also provides key recommendations through which the Government of South Sudan and partner agencies can work together to systematically address trafficking in persons through a whole-of-government approach.
