The Handa Center releases new research on human trafficking
This summer, the Handa Center for Human Rights & International Justice released the results of two research projects on human trafficking.
- Getting to Good Human Trafficking Data: Everyday Guidelines for Frontline Practitioners in Southeast Asia
- Getting to Good Human Trafficking Data: Assessing the Landscape in Southeast Asia and Promising Practices from ASEAN Governments and Civil Society
The second project, led by Handa Center Research Fellow Natasha Dolby, is an in-depth report on Domestic Sex Trafficking of Children in Brazil.
The paper begins by providing a general background on child sex trafficking and a specific overview of the situation in Brazil, including the key determinants of child sex trafficking in Brazil. Next, Dolby provides an analysis of the legal and policy challenges to preventing and responding to child sex trafficking, and examines the psychosocial impact of child sex trafficking. And lastly, she explores alternative approaches to address the effects of sex trafficking among children and provides recommendations for future actions and targeted investments.
