The Government’s Plan of Action against Human Trafficking (2011–2014)

Human trafficking is a form of transnational organised crime and a serious violation of fundamental human rights. The fight against human trafficking is the joint responsibility of the global community.

Human trafficking is a form of transnational organised crime and a serious violation of fundamental human rights. The fight against human trafficking is the joint responsibility of the global community. Our joint efforts must be intensified by further developing the close cooperation that already exists between governments and nongovernmental organisations (NGOs).

The Government is therefore presenting a new action plan against human trafficking as part of the long-term efforts to combat all forms of human trafficking, whether national or international. The action plan has been drawn up by the Ministry of Labour, the Ministry of Children, Equality and Social Inclusion, the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Health and Care Services, the Ministry of Justice and the Police, the Ministry of Local Government and Regional Development, and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

The Ministry of Justice and the Police has the main responsibility for coordinating the Government’s efforts, and State Secretary Astri Aas-Hansen has been in charge of the work on the plan.
