Britain’s diplomatic missions implement a Human Trafficking Strategy overseas, on behalf of her Majesty’s Government. They work with foreign governments in source and transit countries to build their capacity to disrupt and tackle human trafficking. They support local investigators to increase prosecutions for human trafficking offences and conduct awareness raising projects. They contribute to the UK’s and international efforts to combat trafficking by ensuring that UK interests are effectively represented bilaterally and in multilateral fora including the EU and the UN. Our missions also address the root causes of human trafficking through the Department for International Development’s work in the world’s poorest countries.
