The United Nations is an "intergovernmental organization tasked with maintaining international peace and security, developing friendly relations among nations, achieving international co-operation, and being a center for harmonizing the actions of nations." See Wikipedia, United Nations (2019), available as a link below. As part of its goal to maintain international peace and security, the United Nations offers resources to governments about drafting and creating anti-trafficking laws and strategies. Beyond that, governments also receive specialized assistance to encourage cross-border cooperation in investigations and prosecutions of suspected trafficking crimes. See United Nations, About the UN (2019), available as a link below.
