Criminal Law Reform and Anti-Human Trafficking
Strengthening the legal framework
ABA ROLI seeks to strengthen legal protections against human trafficking and to provide government officials and the legal community with resources that can improve the country’s response to this heinous crime. We are working with government officials and other stakeholders to analyze the country’s existing and draft anti-human trafficking laws and to incorporate international standards and best practices.
Enhancing local capacity and raising awareness
ABA ROLI supports local legal experts in promoting policy reform, in enhancing implementation of existing laws and in raising public awareness. Our fellowship program trains young lawyers to serve as human trafficking experts within different governmental and non-governmental organizations. Additionally, ABA ROLI hosts stakeholder meetings to increase awareness of human trafficking and to help formulate strong legal protections and preemptive policy responses.
