MODERN SLAVERY & HUMAN TRAFFICKING THE REALITY
Trafficking in persons is the acquisition of people by improper means such as force, fraud or deception, with the aim of exploiting the individual. Traffickers do not discriminate against age, religion, class, sexual orientation or disability, as victims are purely commodities in a global organised-crime industry.
Every year, thousands of men, women and children fall into the hands of traffickers. This happens inn their own countries and abroad. Every country in the world is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination for victims. Victims often live in plain sight, too frightened to speak up, unable to run away, exploited, abused and in danger.
THE ACT: Recruiting. Transporting. Transferring. Harbouring & Receiving a human.
THE MEANS: Force. Fraud. Deception. Coercion.
EXPLOITATION TYPES: Sexual. Domestic Servitude Forced. Labour. Forced Marriage. Forced Crime. Forced Begging. Organ Harvesting.
