Abstract The first study - "A human rights approach against human trafficking - International obligations and the status of implementation in Germany" - analyses how the prohibition of human trafficking and the resulting state obligations are anchored in human rights. The more recent specialised international agreements on human trafficking and law-making in the European Union are then presented. The emphasis is on the Council of Europe Convention, which professes to treat human trafficking in a human rights context. The study summarizes elements of a human rights approach against human trafficking and makes recommendations for further development of policies. The second study - "Compensation and remuneration for trafficked persons in Germany" - investigates how trafficked persons can be assisted in asserting their claims against perpetrators for compensation and remuneration and their claims against the state for compensation. The legal framework, particularly wage and compensation claims, is analysed and impediments to their practical implementation are shown. Key players from the state and civil society who come into contact with trafficked persons are identified, along with the need for advanced training and potential partners for cooperation.
