“I want to be the last girl in the world with a story like mine”: End Human Trafficking

  • The requirement for there to be the transportation, transfer, harbouring or receipt of person
  • There must be the threat or use of force, coercion, abduction, fraud, deception, abuse of power or vulnerability, or giving payments or benefits to a person in control of the victim
  • And it must be for the purpose of exploitation, which includes exploiting the prostitution of others, sexual exploitation, forced labour, slavery or similar practices and the removal of organs.
  • Prevention of Trafficking in Persons
  • Protection of and assistance to victims of trafficking in persons
  • Prosecution of crimes of trafficking in persons
  • Most of the victims detected across the world are females; mainly adult women, but also increasingly girls.
  • The vast majority of the detected victims of trafficking for sexual exploitation are females, and 35 per cent of the victims trafficked for forced labour are also females, both women and girls.
  • At the same time, more than half of the victims of trafficking for forced labour are men.
  • Armed conflicts can increase the vulnerability to trafficking in different ways. Areas with weak rule of law and lack of resources to respond to crime provide traffickers with a fertile terrain to carry out their operations.
  • Some armed groups involved in conflict may exploit civilians. Armed groups and other criminals may take the opportunity to traffic victims — including children — for sexual exploitation, sexual slavery, forced marriage, armed combat and various forms of forced labour.
