MECPATHS collaborates with the hospitality sector in Ireland to raise awareness on child trafficking and to support hotel management and staff to help prevent this crime.
Hotel staff are amongst the professionals most likely to encounter a victim of trafficking as traffickers seek to take advantage of the privacy and anonymity of hotels. While the hotel industry is in no way responsible for this exploitation, hotel staff can play a key role in the fight against this form of modern-day slavery. When staff are trained to recognise possible signs of this abuse, hotels are in a position to alert the authorities to suspected cases and play their part in countering sex trafficking.
