Name of Resource

Resolution 2388 (2017) Maintenance of international peace and security – trafficking in persons

Type

International legislation / policy

Country / jurisdiction

Global

Organization

United Nations Security Council

Initiative launch date

21 November 2017

Description

The resolution reaffirmed the condemnation, in the strongest terms, of all instances of trafficking in persons, especially women and children, who made up the vast majority of all trafficking victims in areas affected by armed conflict. The resolution also gives greater consideration to how peacekeeping and political missions could help host states in combatting human trafficking. It also requested that the UN Secretary General ensure the inclusion of trafficking in assessments of country situations and in the training of mission personnel, which would help in identifying, confirming, responding and reporting on situations of trafficking.

The resolution calls upon United Nations system organizations to enhance transparency in their procurement and supply chains and step up their efforts to strengthen protections against trafficking in persons in all United Nations procurement and to that effect, request major suppliers to establish and implement anti-human trafficking policies and disclose information on measures taken to counter trafficking in persons in their operations and supply chains.
