Survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on victims of human trafficking and the activities of organizations that provide them with help and support
Key international institutions are paying significant attention to the impact of COVID-19 on human trafficking.
The need to study the possible consequences, increasing the vulnerability of victims, increasing cases of certain forms of exploitation or the emergence of new forms, as well as the challenges faced by organizations that provide assistance to victims and the use of the analysis of this information to improve the state policy against human trafficking was also discussed during expert discussion "The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic and Increased Vulnerability to Human Trafficking".
Public organizations that work in the field of combating human trafficking in Ukraine and victims of human trafficking themselves have the opportunity to express their opinion and contribute to the study of this issue and the presentation of the situation in Ukraine.
The Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR), together with UN Women, is conducting a survey on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on victims of human trafficking and the activities of organizations that provide assistance and support to them. As noted, "survey data will be used to develop policy recommendations to address the immediate and mid-term consequences of COVID-19 to combat human trafficking and ensure the protection of the rights of survivors and victims of human trafficking." The survey will last about 30 minutes, and all responses will remain confidential."
