The present study on child trafficking in Guinea-Bissau has been carried out at the request of UNICEF Iceland and UNICEF Guinea-Bissau. The aim is to describe the occurrences of and to identify determinants for child trafficking within Guinea-Bissau and across the borders to neighbouring countries. A further aim is to analyse the scope of the problem in the different regions and ethnic groups in the country, and the consequences for the children involved.

Proposals and strategic approaches for the prevention of child trafficking are also suggested, in particular regarding family reunification of repatriated children.
