Formatted abstract
The United Nations Protocol against the Smuggling of Migrants by Land, Sea  and Air obliges States Parties to provide ‘appropriate assistance’ to smuggled  migrants. The understanding of the precise content of this provision is,  however, often overshadowed by the broader criminal justice purpose of the  Protocol and by the approach taken by States Parties, including Australia. This  article critically examines the obligations to assist and protect smuggled  migrants by identifying the content and expectations of relevant provisions,  illustrating their practical implementation within the Australian context, and  evaluating these practices against international best practice guidelines in order  to establish whether Australia is meeting its international commitments.
