Abstract

Effective leadership is paramount in navigating the intricate landscape of human trafficking, political models, and border security challenges. In the face of these complex issues, a capable leader serves as a guiding force, steering initiatives towards comprehensive and sustainable solutions. This study delves into the pervasive issue of human trafficking, with a particular focus on its connection to challenges in border security. Drawing from an extensive review of literature spanning the past two decades, the study identifies key contributing factors to human trafficking, including poverty, corruption, porous borders, the abuse of the ECOWAS Protocol, and conflicts among security agencies. The research employs a qualitative approach to analyze 34 significant studies, revealing that human trafficking remains a critical concern, necessitating comprehensive intervention strategies. The study emphasizes the urgent need for leadership in strengthening border security through robust political models, infrastructure, advanced surveillance technology, and anti-corruption measures within security agencies. Additionally, fostering inter-agency collaboration, reevaluating the ECOWAS Protocol, and empowering communities through awareness campaigns and rehabilitation support are identified as crucial steps in combating human trafficking effectively. The article concludes by advocating for sustained commitment and collaboration among various stakeholders to address the challenges of border security as a way to curb human trafficking.
