The Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan believes that the spread of trafficking in persons globally constitutes a challenge that requires national efforts to maintain the Kingdom as a country free of this global phenomenon in all its forms and types in addition to creating mechanisms guaranteed to eliminate it in case of indicators that point to its existence.    

TIP constitutes a violation of the basic principles relevant to the protection of human rights and maintaining their dignity guaranteed by the Jordanian legislation in its provisions supporting those rights in compliance with the international agreements and criteria in this regard, namely the Penal Code, the Combating TIP Law, the Labor Law, and the Benefit from Human Organs Law. It also is a violation of the religions as it violates human dignity protected by all religions. Moreover, it undermines the international human rights criteria represented in agreements and protocols: Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, Supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the sale of children, child prostitution and child pornography annexed to the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

In order to attain a comprehensive national system, the Anti-Human Trafficking National Committee in cooperation with the stakeholders drafted this strategy to create a comprehensive national system that guarantees the coordination of efforts at the internal and external levels and creates appropriate mechanisms for gathering information on this crime and its analysis to identify its various trends at the national, regional and international levels. The strategy and the ensuing action plan provide a practical framework to prevent TIP.
