Indeed, these two aspects contribute to make migrants more or less likely to experience sexual and gender based violence or particular types of labour exploitation and human trafficking.The report looks at both South-South and South-North migration and concludes with recommendations to help the development and implementation of gender and age sensitive migration policies, on the several levels. Among them, policy making, development programs in sending, transit and destination countries; humanitarian response are listed.
