Children who have been displaced by war, civil unrest, human rights violations, poverty, or who have been sent by their families to find safety and employment abroad are particularly vulnerable to exploitation and the many risks associated with irregular migration. Worldwide, irregular migration of children is on the rise, fuelling concerns about their safety and wellbeing, and their involvement in migrant smuggling and trafficking in persons. This chapter explores smuggling and trafficking in children, and the protection of migrant children under the United Nations Protocol Against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea and Air and the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children.
