Abstract: In February 2013 an earlier version of this paper was presented to a stakeholder group, proposing a child-rights approach to the identification and protection of child victims of trafficking in Scotland; an approach that sought to prioritise the protection of children being a higher policy and practice importance than immigration control.  This updated paper, taking account of recent developments, proposes a model of child protection focused practice for child victims of trafficking in Scotland, underpinned by multiagency practice experience and research developed over the last 10 years. The proposal seeks to locate child trafficking practice firmly within existing devolved powers and legislation; any decisions regarding immigration control and residency remain firmly within the powers of the UK Government. This proposal does not necessitate any legislative changes and can be accommodated in existing child protection policy and practice in Scotland.
