This chapter outlines the legal rights and responsibilities that relate to victims of human trafficking in Scotland and the legal landscape for their implementation. It looks at the legal context taking into account international, European and national law; the devolved system of government in Scotland and the interplay with reserved matters, in particular immigration; definitions and systems for identification and protection in Scotland [which are largely policy based and the impact this has in practice] and the rights and responsibilities of Scottish public authorities in relation to human trafficking.

Keywords:   Victim protection, Rights and responsibilities, Legal standards, Devolution
