CEDAW Regional Consultation for the Preparation of a General Recommendation on the Trafficking of Women and Girls in the Context of Global Migration
20 Nov, 2020
Human trafficking has been addressed in international law as a crime, whose main international instrument is the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, from which the protocol to prevent, repress and punish human trafficking, especially of women and children, came about. Additionally, through resolution 04/19 of 7 December 2019, the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights adopted the “Inter-American Principles on the Human Rights of all migrants, refugees, stateless persons, and victims of human trafficking,” and the jurisprudence of the Inter-American Court, as well as the observations and statements issued by the different United Nations Committees, are always applicable.
