This paper examines the causes of child trafficking from Yemen and Afghanistan to Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates. Unless the causes leading to trafficking in both origin and destination countries are understood, the chain of trafficking is difficult to break. A comprehensive approach to combating child trafficking has been proposed to build upon recent successes that utilized innovative child trafficking interventions. This approach will enact and enforce national legislation, foster inter-country collaboration, offer targeted income support and cash transfers and develop a comprehensive prevention strategy for all source countries.
