Access from EThOS:
Within the last decade, much effort has been made by the United Arab Emirates (hereafter the UAE) to tackle the problem of human trafficking, particularly of women. The UAE government has attempted to achieve a balance among the three areas of the prevention of root causes of trafficking, the prosecution and punishment of human traffickers and the protection of rights of trafficked women. In practice, however, the UAE government mainly focuses on criminal justice aspects of trafficking, as many of its anti-trafficking measures and policies have been directed towards enhancing the UAE's efforts to prosecute traffickers, and prevent the crime through border control measures, and raising awareness among law enforcement agencies and officers. The protection of the rights of trafficked women and the addressing of socioeconomic, political and legal conditions that may increase migrant women's vulnerability to trafficking have received little attention. This thesis aims to determine whether the UAE's current anti-trafficking measures and policies to address and solve the problem of trafficking of women are effective, and if they are not, how these measures can be improved.
