The Interparliamentary Taskforce on Human Trafficking is a consortium of Members of Parliament and Congress, government leaders, and lived-experience experts from more than 20 nations and 6 continents who are committed to creating policy solutions to stop one of the greatest humanitarian crises in the world today, human trafficking.

Our Mission

Human trafficking is the second largest criminal enterprise in the world, and there are currently more human trafficking victims on the planet than at any other time in history. Additionally, it generates more than $150 billion annually. Human trafficking and modern slavery are unique among human rights abuses because local and regional escalation not only exploits millions of people in labor trafficking, sex trafficking, organ harvesting, forced marriage and other forms of modern slavery, but it also funds and exacerbates global violence, including terrorism, armed conflict, religious persecution, gender apartheid, and environmental degradation. Historically, legislation has been a foundational pillar in the eradication of slavery, and therefore, the Task Force is a platform for convening legislators, decision-makers and leaders from around the world to collaborate on actionable policy solutions to stop this global crisis.
