An Introduction to Human Trafficking

Human trafficking is a form of modern-day slavery, in which human beings are controlled and exploited for profit. Perpetrators use force, fraud, or coercion to manipulate and establish control over individuals.

Given the underground nature of trafficking, the consequences of trafficking are hidden and difficult to see. Trafficked persons often have limited access to basic necessities such as safety, food, sleep, hygiene, and medical care.

Human Trafficking most often occurs in plain sight, contrary to the common conception. Being aware of human trafficking indicators is the first step in making a difference in the lives of those who may be entrapped.

Various forms of trafficking exist around the world, including forced labor, sex trafficking, child labor, commercial sexual exploitation of children (CSEC), and child soldiers.
