Abstract

Human trafficking has been interpreted as the effect of social disorganization and crime caused by various social factors. Social changes led women and children to leave their homes and villages to scavenge for higher income in another region or country. The research used a normative juridical approach as its method. As the specification of research is descriptive, the analysis method is juridical analytical. Secondary legal materials are presented in the form of primary and secondary. Practical actions are needed to protect and eradicate human trafficking, especially for children. It needs a comprehensive international approach from the countries of origin, transit, and destination. The Government has an obligation to respect, protect, and fulfill the rights of the child, which are contained in some regulations: the Constitution, Act No. 4 Year 1979 about Child Welfare, Act No. 3 Year 1997 Judicial of the Child, Act No. 35 Year 2014 about Child Protection, Act No. 13 Year 2006 on the Protection of Witnesses and Victims, Act No. 21 Year 2007 of PTPPO, The National Plan of Action, Presidential Decree No. 88 Year 2002.
