Criminal Law Reform and Anti-Human Trafficking
In Uganda human trafficking is a problem that affects men, women and children who are bought and sold to be used as forced laborers and sex workers. There are increasing reports of trafficking victims used for human sacrifice. ABA ROLI will work to combat human trafficking in Uganda by unifying existing efforts within the justice sector and civil society via a multi-stakeholder working group. The goal of this group is to enhance functional coordination on trafficking cases and to organize efforts to support the codification and implementation of the 2009 law outlawing human trafficking. By bringing together government officials, civil society leaders, police and public prosecutors, ABA ROLI will assist them in taking concrete steps towards combating human trafficking nationally.
