Chapter Summary

In relation to migration and human rights, the fact of being trafficked as a basis for granting refugee status is a topic which requires further exploration. The potential of the Migrant Workers' Convention as a tool to protect victims of both trafficking and smuggling is also worth examining. It was noted earlier that they can be regarded as migrant workers under the Convention. Human rights scholars and other actors have increasingly been recognising a need to address the human rights abuses committed by non-State actors. Although the book touched upon just one aspect of trafficking of human beings, it is hoped that it has contributed to the scrutiny of relatively new aspects of human rights and trafficking of human beings, and that research on different aspects of the phenomenon follows in order to promote better understanding and more effective response to this evil of the contemporary world.
