Recently, the world has been hit by a massive wave of refugees, precipitating the global refugee crisis, which is a pressing issue of global concern. Consequently, addressing this crisis needs innovative approaches. The aim of this article is to establish a relatively new initiative through combining two topics: the global refugee crisis and the crime of trafficking in persons. Accordingly, by combining these two topics, this article will try to find a new initiative that addresses a certain category of trafficked victims, namely trafficked refugees. By analysing the existing primary and secondary sources on relevant issues in relation to the crime of trafficking in persons and the issue of refugees, this article concludes that, despite the difficulties of addressing these issues and the current attempts in Jordan, it is still significant to identify trafficked victims among refugees as this might result in them receiving particular attention.
