Human Trafficking : Webguide &Research

Ξ March 2nd, 2007 | → 0 Comments | ∇ Politics and Society |



    introduction Trafficking is the fastest growing means by which people are forced into slavery. It affects every continent and most countries. A US Government report published in 2003, estimates that at least 800,000-900,000 people worldwide are trafficked each year. Human trafficking involves the movement of people through violence, deception or coercion for the purpose of forced labour, servitude or slavery-like practices. It is slavery because traffickers use violence, threats, and other forms of coercion to force their victims to work against their will. This includes controlling their freedom of movement, where and when they will work and what pay, if any, they will receive. It is impossible to know exactly how many people are trafficked and statistics are difficult to obtain because trafficking is an underground activity.
