Trafficking in Human Beings


France’s actions in the area of fight against human trafficking

France fully supports international mechanisms for combating trafficking in humans.
France is an active advocate for the universalisation and effective implementation of the additional protocol to the UN Convention against Transnational Organised Crime (UNTOC, otherwise known as the Palermo Convention), to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children. The Protocol is the only universal binding legal instrument against human trafficking. It centres on prevention and the protection of victims, but also on international cooperation on the prosecution and punishment of those who engage in trafficking.
