dc.description.abstract Safe Horizon, a victim assistance agency serving the New York City area, is developing and convening a Global Learning Collaborative of human trafficking providers in order to explore best practice approaches when working with victims of human trafficking. As a first step before convening such a group, it was crucial to hear the voices of service providers around the world and to document those voices in a summary of findings. This summary will serve as a foundation for Safe Horizon to then gather service providers for the Global Learning Collaborative. Through funding by Philip Morris International (PMI), Safe Horizon contracted the Center on Violence Against Women & Children (VAWC) at Rutgers University’s School of Social Work to interview providers working with victims of human trafficking across the globe. Safe Horizon chose to work with VAWC to engage an international network of human trafficking service providers in order to explore practice approaches for this project, Providing Services to Trafficking Victims: Understanding Practices Across the Globe. This research was completed in two concurrent project phases. The goal of Phase One was to complete a comprehensive literature review on best practices and policies related to services for human trafficking victims across the globe. Publications and research studies found in the academic literature as well as online reports were reviewed by the research team. This information was used to inform the data methods used in Phase Two and to provide background information for Safe Horizon in preparation for the Global Learning Collaborative. The goal of Phase Two was to collect detailed information from at least thirty providers from twenty countries to learn about and summarize their practice approaches when working with human trafficking victims. This was accomplished by: 1) Identifying the 30 providers from at least 20 countries to participate in interviews for the project; 2) Interviewing the identified providers about their work with human trafficking victims; and 3) Analyzing the data collected. This report summarizes findings from this project and includes a literature review, as well as study methods and results from the interviews. The report concludes with a series of recommendations based on these findings. [CVRL Note: Qualitative Approach through snowball sampling and interview analysis. Main goal of this report is to “explore best practices for service providers working with human trafficking victims."
