Subject: Trafficking in Women: Remedies under International Human Rights Law

Dear all,

I am currently researching the human rights based approach to
trafficking in women with particular emphasis on legal remedy,
protection and assistance for victims of trafficking under
international law. In particularly, I am looking at the possibility
of establishing a state responsibility vis a vis the victim under the
international human rights instruments such as the International
Covenant on Civil and Political Rights and the European Convention on
Human Rights and their enforcement machinery(they both provide for a
judicial remedy). However, in both cases the domestic remedies should
be exhausted before the victim can file a complaint to the above
mentioned instances.

I would like to kindly ask you to provide me with any information on
national/international jurisprudence/cases you might have come across
and the decisions of national courts taken in the cases, so as to
conduct a legal analysis of the cases in the light of UN Human Rights
Committee and/or the European Court on Human Rights in Strasbourg.

Thank you and looking forward to further communication.
