Human trafficking is the illegal trade in human beings for the purposes of commercialsexual exploitation or forced labor: a modern-day form of slavery.
Trafficking is a lucrative industry. It is now the fastest growing criminal industry in the world. Globally, it is tied with the illegal arms trade, as the second largest criminal activity, following the drug trade. Human trafficking usually affects women and children. The total annual revenue for trafficking in persons is estimated to be between USD $5 billion and $9 billion. The Council of Europe states, “People trafficking has reached epidemic proportions over the past decade, with a global annual market of about $42.5 billion.”
The United Nations estimates nearly 2.5 million people from 127 different countries are being trafficked around the world.
“There is more trafficking of women within the country than there is out the country.”
