The 3P-Index has been developed in Cho et al. (forthcoming) and is one of the first composite indices of human trafficking available for a large set of countries and over an extensive period (2000-2012). The index exploits information on governmental efforts to fight human trafficking in the three main policy areas - prosecution of traffickers, prevention of the crime and protection of trafficking victims - identified by the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children (2000).
- Prosecution: punishment of traffickers [scale 1 to 5]
- Prevention: campaigns and preventive actions [scale 1 to 5]
- Protection: treatment of victims [scale 1 to 5]
- 3P-Index: whole policy approach [scale 3 to 15]
Each single policy is evaluated on a 5-point scale, where a score of 5 indicates the best policy practice with a score of 1 being the worst.
The aggregated overall index (3P-Index) is the unweighted sum scoring from 3 (worst) to 15 (best).
Data are available on a yearly basis for up to 184 countries over the 2000 - 2012 period. The coding for the 2000-2010 period has been supervised by Seo-Young Cho, the 2011 and 2012 update by Alexandra Rudolph.
