Description:

This book addresses the issue of victims of human trafficking which is overlooked under most legal systems. Currently, human trafficking is the most lucrative business in the world next to arms and drug dealings. Victims of human trafficking suffer from multifaceted human rights abuses. This book explores the protection accorded to victims of human trafficking under international and regional human rights instruments. It also looks into the challenges faced in enforcing those international and regional protections at the domestic forum. Furthermore, it makes an inquiry on the adequacy of the legal protection granted to victim of trafficking under the Ethiopian and Mozambican legal framework in comparison to the international and regional one. This book attempts to fill the existing literature gap on the issue of protecting victims of human trafficking. It may be used by students, academician, researchers and human rights activists.
