Lebanon is a destination country for internationally trafficked persons, primarily women. Women from different countries of origin travel to Lebanon, in the belief that they will work as domestic workers and have reportedly been forced into domestic servitude and sexual exploitation. This paper presents the results of a monitoring report that rates key duty bearers on their progress between 2015 and 2018 in achieving recommendations from Lebanon’s 2015 UPR to Identify, protect and support victims of trafficking and forced labour, as well as to pursue and enhance efforts to combat trafficking .
