Consultation on a Human Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy for Scotland

Closed 7 Dec 2016

Opened 12 Oct 2016


Human trafficking and exploitation are abhorrent crimes, as well as abuses of human rights and dignity.  They involve trading adults and children as commodities and exploiting them for profit or personal benefit and they happen in Scotland today. Adults and children are trafficked and exploited within and between communities in Scotland and the wider UK, as well as into Scotland from abroad.

The draft Trafficking and Exploitation Strategy sets out what the Scottish Government plans to do to tackle these and this consultation asks for your views on these proposals.
