Chapter Summary

According to recent estimates by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), the illegal trafficking of human beings and slave trade generates some seven billion Euros a year for the criminals engaged in it. This chapter illustrates the content of the NATO Policy on Combating Human Trafficking and its annexes and explains its impact on peace support operations (PSOs). It tries to provide some guidelines and explain how the phenomenon of human trafficking may be addressed by the military and why this should be one of their priorities. The chapter illustrates how the NATO Policy may be binding on peacekeeping troops, which do not belong directly to NATO but which act under the aegis of their sending state. Implementation of NATO's Policy at the domestic level, with a case of Switzerland is also discussed. Finally, the chapter presents some practical tools for those engaged in the field.
