Child trafficking data highlights “broken family dynamics”

Listen /

According to data from the Counter-Trafficking Data Collaborative (CTDC), released by IOM on 28 November 2017, family members are linked to nearly half of all identified cases of child trafficking. UN Photo/Tobin Jones

Family is assumed to be a protective structure, but this is not always the case.

That's the view of Harry Cook, Data Management & Research Specialist for the UN Migration Agency (IOM) in Geneva, speaking in reference to new statistics that show child victims of human trafficking are often coerced by family members.

The Counter-Trafficking Data Collaborative (CTDC), initiated with the help of IOM, is the world's first human trafficking portal to include multiple agency contributions.

Mr Cook spoke with Natalie Hutchison about how this data can be used to strengthen counter-trafficking interventions.
