North Atlantic Treaty Organization


Measures to combat human trafficking

Nato member countries are also signatories to the UN Protocol on Trafficking in Persons. While NATO’s role is not to combat trafficking of persons, it signed a zero-tolerance policy for military and civilian personnel and contractors taking part in NATO-led operations. NATO trains its personnel on appropriate standards of behavior during the operations. However, the enforcement of these policies and legislation needs to be looked into more dutifully, to prevent the exploitation of human life.
