Chapter 3 of the book highlights the severity of the crime and the various conventions and protocols enforced in combating the crime. It emphasises on the importance of a strong legal response to fight human trafficking and highlights various legislations and legal framework enacted and enforced across the world at various levels. It also emphasizes the effectiveness of the international legal responses highlighting the weaknesses and flaws in these legislations, both at the international, domestic, regional and national level. The chapter further explains the enforcement of anti-trafficking laws at the domestic and regional level based on the International Law and the UN conventions and protocols. The role of the ICC statute in combating trafficking with the help of its provisions in identifying this crime, the victims and the extent of exploitation and the provisions for prosecution of the traffickers have also been discussed in this chapter.
