7. Kerja Sama Pemerintah Nigeria dengan UNICEF dalam Rangka Menangani Perdagangan Anak di Nigeria

Nigeria is an African country notorious for human trafficking across its borders.
Trafficking in Nigeria is one of the biggest crimes after economic fraud and drug
trafficking. Victims of human trafficking in Nigeria are mostly children; this is because
their families have to deal with a number of economic constraints, for instance low wages,
which make them more vulnerable to being trafficked. To overcome the problem, the
UNICEF has been mandated by the UN to assist Nigeria in applying the international
child rights convention to combat the problem of child trafficking in there. In 2003,
UNICEF and the Government of Nigeria agreed on the Child Rights Act, which is used as
the basis for addressing the problem of child trafficking. As a descriptive study, this
research aims to describe the phenomenon of child trafficking in Nigeria and gives an
overview of cooperation by the government of Nigeria with UNICEF in order to handle
that problem. This study would like to observe the Nigerian government's cooperation with
UNICEF in addressing child trafficking in Nigeria. The cooperation between the
Government of Nigeria with UNICEF related to child trafficking generates the Child
Rights Act (CRA), which becomes the foundation of the rights of the child, as well as the
protection of the children.
