OSCE Survey on National Minorities and Human Trafficking

The OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) and OSCE Office of the Special Representative and Coordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings (OSR/CTHB) are developing policy recommendations and guidance in relation to national minorities and human trafficking, based on data collected through surveys of survivors of trafficking and civil society organizations to ensure the implementation of a human rights-based, gender-sensitive and victim-centered approach.

The OSCE participating States have identified discrimination based on race and ethnicity among the root causes of human trafficking and addressing all forms of discrimination against minorities is therefore essential. OSCE examines heightened vulnerabilities and cycles of trafficking of national minority groups due to multiple forms of institutional discrimination and marginalization based on race and ethnicity in accessing protection, remedies and assistance services.

NGOs, IGOs and trafficked persons can still contribute to the survey, which will be active until 26 of February 2021 and is available in 17 languages. ​If you are a staff of an NGO or IGO, please use this link: ​​ If you are a survivor of human trafficking, please use this link:
