World Day Against Trafficking in Persons: Human Trafficking in Sudan


The coronavirus pandemic has exacerbated the existing individual, community, structural and environmental risk factors that drive human trafficking and modern slavery in Sudan.

In our joint project with the University of Nottingham’s Rights Lab, as well as Global Partners Governance and Waging Peace, we found that while the pandemic has had little discernible impact on the criminal networks, perpetrators and methods that underpin the trafficking industry, already vulnerable groups have been disproportionately affected, and the dynamics of vulnerability and routes taken have shifted.

As part of RUSI’s contributions to mark the World Day Against Trafficking in Persons, in this video, Keith Ditcham and Michael Jones explain the key findings of the report.
