Human Trafficking

Human Trafficking and SlaveryHuman trafficking involves men, women and children being recruited, harboured or brought into a situation of exploitation through the use of violence, deception or coercion and forced to work against their will. People can be trafficked for many different forms of exploitation such as forced prostitution, forced labour, forced begging, forced criminality, domestic servitude, forced marriage, forced organ removal. 

Contrary to a common misconception, people don't necessarily have to be transported from one place to another for trafficking to take place. 

When children are trafficked, no violence, deception or coercion needs to be involved: simply bringing them into exploitative conditions constitutes trafficking.

SMUGGLING OR TRAFFICKING?People trafficking and people smuggling are often confused. People smuggling is the illegal movement of people across international border for a fee and upon arrival in the country of destination the smuggled person is free.
People trafficking is fundamentally different as the trafficker is facilitating the movement of that person for the purpose of exploitation.

There is no need for an international border to be crossed in cases of trafficking, it occurs also nationally, even within one community.
