Chapter Summary

Peace support operations (PSOs) around the world now cover a wide range of activities very different from those handled by their predecessors. Trafficking in persons is a difficult and complex crime that is very hard to investigate and prosecute because of its clandestine nature. This chapter sets out the minimum law enforcement strategies necessary for successful investigations in this area while recognizing the unique challenges associated with investigating such crimes in a PSO. After addressing some common areas of confusion, it discusses some of the root causes and dynamics of trafficking in persons. Then, the chapter provides some practical suggestions for investigations including the appropriate identification and handling of victims and witnesses including children. Trafficking is a crime usually associated with a variety of other criminal offenses at different stages of the trafficking process.
