Transnational Issues in The Gambia

Disputes – International

The Gambia has been attempting to stem the flow of refugees, cross-border raids, arms smuggling, and other illegal activities by separatists from southern Senegal's Casamance region, as well as from conflicts in other west African states.

Refugees & Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs)

As of 2013, there were 9,025 refugees from Senegal in The Gambia.

Trafficking in Persons

The Gambia is a source, transit and destination country for women and children subjected to forced labour and sex trafficking. Gambian women, children and to a lesser extent, boys, are exploited for prostitution and domestic servitude. Women, girls and boys from West African countries are trafficked to the Gambia for sexual exploitation, particularly catering to European tourists seeking sex with children. Some Gambian trafficking victims have been identified in neighbouring West African countries and the UK. Boys in some Quranic schools are forced into street vending or begging.
