Understanding Trafficking in Persons in the MENA Region: The Causes, the Forms, the Routes, and the Measures to Combat a Serious Violation of Human Rights

Drawing from more than 10 years of experience in providing capacity-building training on trafficking in persons to all levels of society and to the governments in the greater Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region, The Protection Project at The Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies wrote this training manual with two objectives in mind: first, developing a training manual for practitioners specifically tailored to the forms and routes of trafficking in persons in the MENA region; second, addressing in detail some of the specific and particular issues of the region, including the Islamic law perspective on combating trafficking in persons.
