Abstract A key aim of the United Nations (UN) Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children is to facilitate a consistent and coordinated international response to trafficking in persons. To assist in the achievement of this goal, this article identifies and explores potential barriers to ratification for the remaining 47 non-party states. Using country and region-specific examples, this article details a lack of capacity to implement the Protocol, lack of understanding of the Protocol and its requirements and a lack of political will as the core issues preventing universal ratification.
