Since its reemergence as a popular human rights concern in the late 1990s, the issue of human trafficking has gained an extensive assortment of advocates, many of whom possess differing objectives. This thesis explores the cooperation that occurs between state agencies, religious communities, faith-based groups and non-governmental organizations both formally and informally. These partnerships are generally considered beneficial by those involved in work against human trafficking; however, cooperation between such diverse groups is not without challenges. Ultimately, successful cooperation depends on positive personal relationships between partners. The following research is designed as an introduction to partnerships against human trafficking. It also shares suggestions for improving relationships between members of working partnerships.
