Researching Domestic Servitude in MENA

ABA ROLI conducted research on domestic servitude in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region to inform strategies to strengthen the prevention of domestic servitude, prosecution of cases, and protection of victims. ABA ROLI documented specific enforcement and intervention programs in MENA destination countries and determined their impact on domestic servitude. ABA ROLI also identified MENA national and regional strategies and actions to enhance the visibility of domestic servitude and to provide victims with greater opportunities for protection and justice. Regional and international experts conducted desk research and led interviews and discussions with government and civil society representatives focused on domestic workers in project countries. This project was funded by the U.S. Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons.
