HUMAN
TRAFFICKING




Trafficking in persons is a serious crime and a grave violation of human rights.
Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers,
in their own countries and abroad. Almost every country in the world is affected by
trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims.

UNODC, as guardian of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized
Crime (UNTOC) and the Protocols thereto, assists States in their efforts to implement
the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons (Trafficking in
Persons Protocol).

WHAT IS
HUMAN
TRAFFICKING?




Human trafficking involves the sale of human beings. This activity occurs
on the black market, as it is illegal in nearly all parts of the world.
Humans can be trafficked or sold for a number of illegal or illicit
purposes.

In many cases, human trafficking begins with the person or people who are
sold being kidnapped. This is not always the case, as sometimes a prostitute
will agree to be sold by her pimp as a result of fear, drug addiction, or
other related reasons. Thus, although kidnapping is not always required, the
person being trafficked will always be under the control of the individual
engaging in the trafficking through some means.

Human trafficking commonly occurs across international borders. An individual
may be coerced or tricked into believing that he is going to a new country for
a job opportunity. Upon arriving at the new country, the individual may find
that he is told he must pay his way for his passage through indentured servitude
or forced slavery; this is often referred to as debt bondage. The individual is
in a foreign country, and often too scared to try to escape from the situation.

Trafficking may also occur as a result of extreme poverty. Desperate parents may
sell their children into slavery. Orphans and others who are unable to support
themselves are also ready victims, who may be tricked into entering into forced
slavery or prostitution in a desperate attempt to escape their circumstances.

The humans being trafficked are then sold by the individual on the black market,
and are purchased for any number of reasons. An individual may be sold as a slave,
and purchased to be used to conduct forced labor. A person may also be sold into
prostitution or sexual slavery. This is common with prostitutes. Unfortunately, it
also occurs with kidnapped children who may be sold into sexual slavery to
pedophiles.

Human trafficking occurs worldwide. Source countries, where the humans being trafficked
come from, tend to be poorer countries and/or countries without well-developed legal
systems to prevent the kidnapping or coercion of citizens. The individuals are then
taken from the source countries to destination countries where they are sold.

Destination countries often include wealthier areas where people can afford to buy the
trafficked individuals. The United States, parts of Europe, India, and Japan are all
considered destination countries where buyers may purchase another human through human
trafficking.

WHAT ARE THE
DIFFERENT WAYS TO
COMBAT TRAFFICKING?




Human trafficking is truly a hydra of criminal activity. With multiple root
causes and dozens of different varieties, attempting to combat trafficking
is truly a Herculean effort. There are many reputable theories on how best
to combat trafficking, providing a blend of possible options for governments
and human rights organizations.

Legislation is one of the primary ways to combat trafficking. Enacting swift,
severe punishments against slavers and human traffickers may sometimes act as
a deterrent against the crime. Creating truly efficient legislation to punish
traffickers and assist victims is a long-term process that involves months or
years of assessment, brainstorming, writing laws, and managing enforcement.
While it is clear that legislation can help combat trafficking, it is only part
of the solution.
