Information Booklet on Counter Trafficking in Persons Act, 2010
Kenya plays a significant role in contributing to mixed migration in the Horn of
Africa most notably being a source, transit, and destination country for trafficking.
Despite being a signatory party of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish
Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children (the Palermo Protocol),
Kenya still does not fully comply with the minimum standards for the elimination
of trafficking. This booklet aims to provide information on
trafficking to law enforcement officers, court users as well as individuals to
recognize trafficking in persons and ensure the proper assistance to the victims.
The booklet will also act as a reference tool for experts in the field of human rights
and forced migration to enhance their understanding prevention; protection and
prosecution of matters relating to trafficking in persons together with relevant
agencies and the Government of Kenya.
