The Spanish Action Plan Against Trafficking in Women: Policies and Outcomes (2008-2011)

Agustina Iglesias Skulj, from the University of A Coruña, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Criminal Justice and Human Rights,” under the title “The Spanish Action Plan Against Trafficking in Women: Policies and Outcomes (2008-2011)”. Here is the abstract: This paper aims to carry out an analysis of the design and implementation of policies against trafficking in Spain. According to the Executive summary of the Global Report on trafficking in persons of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNDOC) in 2009 – containing information from 155 countries and territories on measures to combat trafficking-, in November 2008, 63% of the world's countries had adopted measures against trafficking in general, while 16 percent had adopted measures to combat only certain elements contained in the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish trafficking in persons. The Spanish case is included in the latter group.
