Trafficked Children
Date:1 OCT 2007

A report published in September by UNICEF UK and ECPAT UK states that, despite recent moves made by the UK Government to demonstrate its commitment to tackling child trafficking, there are still significant gaps and inconsistencies in child protection standards for trafficked children in the UK compared to international standards. The report, Rights Here, Rights Now: Recommendations for Protecting Trafficked Children, calls for a number of solutions, including providing each trafficked child with a guardian to uphold their best interests, ensuring data on child trafficking is monitored and reported to Parliament, and providing trafficked children with renewable residence permits to secure their legal status. For more information see [2007] International Family Law, Issue 4.
