Transforming Children's Care Webinar #9 - The Legal Framework of Orphanage Trafficking: Cambodia Nepal and Uganda
Orphanage trafficking involves the recruitment and/or transfer of children to residential care institutions for a purpose of exploitation and profit. It typically takes place in lower- and middle-income countries where child protection services systems are highly privatized, under-regulated, and primarily funded by overseas sources. Orphanage trafficking crimes are poorly understood, often go undetected and are rarely prosecuted- even in countries where its occurrence has been well documented.

To enhance the identification, prosecution, and prevention of orphanage trafficking, Griffith University, UBS and BCN partnered on a multi country, multistage research project to examine the legal frameworks of orphanage trafficking in Cambodia, Uganda, and Nepal. This research aims to analyze the current legal, policy and procedural frameworks under domestic law in all three focal countries and under international law and to better understand how cases indicative of orphanage trafficking are detected and treated by law enforcement.

This webinar will present the findings from the stage one analysis of the legal, policy and procedural frameworks. It will also feature presentations on the situation of orphanage trafficking from in-country investigators and experts.

This webinar will be moderated by Britta Holmberg, Deputy Secretary General & Program Director, World Childhood Foundation.
