UNODC, with its Global Programmes against trafficking in persons, smuggling of migrants and field based projects, follows a victims'/migrants' rights-centred and gender-specific approach, aiming to ensure protection of human rights of trafficked persons and smuggled migrants. With women and girls being a particularly vulnerable group, UNODC seeks to contribute to gender equality by strengthening the rights and the position of victims and smuggled migrants during investigation and prosecution by competent authorities. The Global Programmes seek to ensure, where possible, a gender balance in the different activities, notably with regard to participants in capacity building activities/workshops. Performance indicators are, where possible, disaggregated by sex and age. Also, gender is incorporated into questionnaires given to participants (e.g. country assessments, training questionnaires, etc).
