Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others

The Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others is a resolution of the UN General Assembly.  It came into force on July 25, 1951.  According to the convention, the traffic in persons for the purpose of prostitution is incompatible with the dignity and worth of the human person. The Convention aims at combating international traffic for the purpose of prostitution and provides for the extradition of offenders. It also prohibits the running of brothels and renting accommodation for prostitution purposes.  States that have ratified the convention work closely with each other by searching for missing persons and identifying networks of procurers.
