PDF File Size: 1.11 MB | Download   
The United Nations Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking (UN.GIFT) was conceived to promote the global fight on human trafficking, on the basis of international agreements reached at the UN. UN.GIFT was launched in March 2007 by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime(UNODC) with a grant made on behalf of the United Arab Emirates. It is managed in cooperation with International Labour Organization(ILO); the International Organization for Migration(IOM); the UN Children's Fund(UNICEF); the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR); and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe(OSCE).
UN.GIFT works with all stakeholders; governments, business, academia, civil society and the media to support each other's work, create new partnerships and develop effective tools to fight human trafficking. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, Regional Office for South Asia,(UNODC ROSA) and the UN Women, South Asia signed a Memorandum of Understanding, whereby they committed to strengthen the existing cooperation in dealing with the organized crime of human trafficking in the South Asian countries of Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Maldives and Sri Lanka. With the entry into force of the UNTOC and its Protocols, the international community took a major step in the fight against organized crime. The Protocol in particular gives the first comprehensive definition of human trafficking. It obliges States to criminalize this practice, and many have adopted legislation translating the Protocols' obligations into national law. International cooperation is a basic condition for successfully responding to trafficking in persons, and therefore bilateral, regional and global agreements are needed. The Protocol seeks to prevent trafficking in persons, protect victims of trafficking and promote cooperation among State Parties in order to meet these objectives. Within South Asia, the legal regime is diverse, and the SAARC Convention on Preventing and Combating Trafficking in Women and Children for Prostitution, 2002, represents a need and political commitment from countries in the SAARC Region. Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Sri Lanka have all taken steps in the right direction to combat human
trafficking; however, there is a need to look closely at country specific laws to understand where the gaps lie. It is in the light of this, that a Legal and Policy Review of Responses to Human Trafficking has been taken up.
