State Social Counter-Trafficking Program: Do Not Look Away


Human trafficking is one of the global issues of our time. It has the fastest development rate among other criminal businesses. In almost every country of the world, men, women, and children are equally affected by various forms of this crime. In order to prevent such violations, the world community marks the World Day against Trafficking in Persons (July 30).

This issue is particularly pressing for Ukraine. According to the Council of Europe’s Group of Experts on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings (GRETA), in recent years the country has faced a significant increase in the number of trafficking cases for labor exploitation. One of the conditions contributing to the spread of this crime is legal unawareness of citizens, as well as the difficult economic situation, and a high unemployment rate.

Ukraine’s government has identified combating human trafficking as a priority of its activity on human rights protection. Ukraine’s legislation provides human trafficking victims for comprehensive assistance (psychological, socio-pedagogical, social-medical, legal, employment, and retraining assistance) based on the victims’ personal needs, including one-time payments.

Beyond that, the government places much focus on raising public awareness and calling public attention to the issue.

The information materials on countering human trafficking is available on the website of the Representative Office of the International Organization for Migration in Ukraine.
