by Anne T. Gallagher, The International Law Of Human Trafficking Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download The International Law Of Human Trafficking book, Although human trafficking has a long and ignoble history, it is only recently that trafficking has become a major political issue for states and the international community and the subject of detailed international rules.

She links these rules to the international law of state responsibility as well as key norms of international human rights law, transnational criminal law, refugee law and international criminal law, in the process identifying and explaining the major legal obligations of states with respect to preventing trafficking, protecting and supporting victims, and prosecuting perpetrators. This book is a groundbreaking work: a unique and valuable resource for policymakers, advocates, practitioners and scholars working in this controversial and important field.

by Vincenzo Militello, Between Criminalization And Protection Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Between Criminalization And Protection book, This volume is devoted to the dark side of human mobility, that is migrant smuggling, and, linked with it, human trafficking. Both subjects will be mainly treated from an Italian perspective; however, due to their having a generally transnational character, the analysis will necessarily require that international and supranational actions/measures also be taken into account. Moreover, the legal perspective will be supplemented by the phenomenological/criminological one, through which the authors try to provide the work with a realistic dimension aimed at grasping the practical aspects of both migrant smuggling and human trafficking emerging from the different ways in which such crimes are de facto committed.
by Florence Baumann, Criminal Responsibility Of Migrant Smugglers In International Criminal Law Books available in PDF, EPUB, Mobi Format. Download Criminal Responsibility Of Migrant Smugglers In International Criminal Law book, The thesis analyses the individual criminal responsibility of migrant smugglers in international law. The purpose of this thesis is to analyse under which provisions migrant smugglers can be held accountable. The first section of the thesis explains the phenomenon of migrant smuggling and delimitates it from other related phenomena. In order to legally analyse the criminal responsibility of migrant smugglers, the methods of three migrant smugglers are presented. The Statute of the International Criminal Court provides the definition and criminalization of the most serious crimes. The legal analysis of the smugglers concluded that their actions do not constitute one of those crimes. However, there is a more specific international instrument: the United Nations Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air. The legal analysis of the three smugglers' methods established that, while all three committed the crime of migrant smuggling, there are some issues within the Protocol, such as the definition of the act itself, that can make it difficult to prosecute smugglers.
