What is HUMAN TRAFFICKING?

Trafficking is modern-day slavery, which seems to be the fastest-growing criminal enterprise in the world today. Two broad categories of HUMAN TRAFFICKING are labor trafficking and sexual trafficking. Trafficking in persons (TIP) is a process through which an individual loses her/his freedom and independence to be used as someone else’s slave or “property.”

A case of trafficking in persons requires three elements:

 

WHAT? An ACT (or attempted act) of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring, or receiving a person

 

HOW? By MEANS of force, fraud, abduction, deception, or coercion

 

WHY? For the PURPOSE of EXPLOITATION, such as  domestic servitude, slave labor or services, prostitution and other forms of sexual exploitation, begging, illicit removal of body parts, and forced combat in armed conflict

 

What can you do to abolish human trafficking?
