This Compendium of Resources was developed under the OSCE extra budgetary project “Prevention of trafficking in human beings in supply chains through government practices and measures”. I would like to express my gratitude to the governments of Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, Switzerland, the United Kingdom and the United States of America for providing generous financial and political support to this important project. Without this support, the development of the Compendium of Resources would not have been possible.

The compilation of this Compendium of Resources would not have been possible without the numerous inputs and contributions from government officials and stakeholders who participated in our project events and workshops, as well as our experts and partners. I would like to thank the experts and officials of the OSCE participating States who attended the project events. We are indebted to each of you for contributing greatly to the Compendium of Resources with information on national practices related to the prevention of trafficking in human beings in supply chains.

Special thanks also to the experts and organizations who partnered with our Office, actively participated in the project and contributed to the Compendium of Resources, including: the Council of the Baltic Sea States; the Danish

National Board of Social Services Center against Human Trafficking; the Ethical Trading Initiative; the Institute for Human Rights and Business; the International Labour Organization; the National Pact Institute for the Eradication of Forced Labor (InPacto); Brazil; Swedish county councils, the UK Gangmasters and Labour Abuse Authority, and the US Office of Management and Budget.

For the second, updated edition, special thanks go to the OSCE participating States and the National AntiTrafficking Coordinators/ Rapporteurs who made written contributions to the update of the Compendium of Resources.

The first edition from 2018 of the Compendium of Resources was prepared by Radu Cucos, Assistant Officer on Combating Trafficking in Human Beings, who efficiently gathered and analysed a wealth of publicly available information and contributions by experts and OSCE participating States. Ruth Freedom Pojman, former OSCE Senior Adviser, provided substantial inputs and exemplary overall leadership on the project.

This second edition of the Compendium of Resources was updated by Teresa Gil Ricol, Junior Professional Officer, under the supervision and lead of my Senior Advisor Julia Rutz.
