In June 2014, the Government of Haiti passed a new anti-trafficking law in order to fill a fundamental legal vacuum for the protection of survivors and for prosecution of perpetrators of human trafficking. These new legal provisions particularly important in an island known for being a country of origin, transit, and destination for the trafficking of human beings. This brief, published by the HPP AKSE program, aims to explain the rationale, scope, and implications of this new law. It is especially intended to inform non-governmental organizations working in the field of human rights.
