A new UN publication sheds light on the ways in which victims of human trafficking are accommodated during different stages of their trafficking ordeal.

This process known as ‘harbouring’ constitutes an act of human trafficking in the internationally recognised definition of this crime and is used by prosecutors and judges to secure convictions.

Martin Hemmi, a UNODC Associate Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Officer, who coordinated the production of the report, says he hopes the new study will be used by investigators, prosecutors and judges to lead to a better understanding of this crime and support measures to effectively protect victims and punish traffickers.
