The American Bar Association's Central European and Eurasian Law Initiative (ABA-CEELI) has created an assessment tool to measure countries compliance with the United Nation's Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children.  The tool assess a country's both de jure and de facto compliance with the UN Trafficking Protocol.  The Assessment tool considers laws and governmental efforts to eliminate traficking and compares them to the country's obligations under the UN Trafficking Protocol. The Assessment also looks at best practices and regional approaches to trafficking. In piloting the program, ABA-CEELI has used the assessment tool to look at the situation in Moldova.
