Rescue NGOs are organisations that conduct tactical operations targeting bars or brothels and other establishments, with the intent of releasing people from situations of sexual exploitation. Their role in counter trafficking comes under significant criticism - predominantly for acting unilaterally and without regard for the impact their ‘raids’ have on trafficked victims and sex workers. This article will suggest that rescue NGOs are better placed to develop intelligence collection and analysis capabilities. It challenges recue NGOs to rethink the paramilitary approach and train its rescue volunteers in intelligence collection and analysis. It encourages greater collaborations, training and awareness.
