Partnerships against human trafficking

A cross-sector, coordinated approach enables us to combine our strengths and exchange best practice for maximum results on the ground.

Partners

We work with a number of key partners, who are also involved in the fight against human trafficking, including:

  • Europol
  • International Organization for Migration
  • Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe
  • OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights
  • UN Women
  • United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime

On the ground, we foster relationships with NGOs, government ministries and social services to ensure victims of trafficking receive appropriate treatment and care, and are protected throughout the identification and judicial processes.

Private sector partners play a key role in preventing, identifying and reporting suspected cases of human trafficking. In 2018, for example, Uber was the first private sector partner to join INTERPOL’s Human Trafficking Expert Group, followed by Western Union. We have also built strong working relationships with financial institutions, transportation, accommodation and online service providers.

Global conference
