We see the following actions to be prioritized at global level:
- Integration of children’s human rights norms and principles in the design, implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of all public policies and programs;
- Stronger focus on the victim, i.e. a victim centred approach and the inclusion of survivors in all anti-trafficking work and ensure that victims’ access to rights and services is not dependent on the status and classification of criminal procedures and their participation in such proceedings;
- Recognize human trafficking as a gendered crime and prostitution as sexual exploitation and violence against women and girls and well as the need to address gender inequalities in society as a root cause by inter alia including modules on trafficking and sexual exploitation of children as well as gender inequalities and healthy relationships in school curriculums;
- Ensure proactive identification of victims of all forms of trafficking and sexual exploitation, especially children both offline and online and strengthen child and social protection systems;
- Demand a comprehensive and competent law enforcement response to address, identify and punish perpetrators as well as sufficient data on the scale and patterns of child trafficking, including recent trends and developments.
- Establish an international legal framework on the liability of online platforms for online trafficking and exploitation taking place on their websites as well as an efficient enforcement of such.
