- Child Trafficking
- Child trafficking as the act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harbouring or receiving children through the use of force coercion or deception for the purpose of exploiting them. This concept is accepted internationally but it tends to place too much emphasis on movement. We see women trafficking as a form of modern-day slavery, where people profit from the control and exploitation of others. Every country is affected by trafficking, whether as a country of origin, transit or destination. It is a lucrative criminal industry, second only to drug trafficking, generating billions of dollars annually. A wide range of trafficking occurs in which this is not the case. Often, there are much more subtle forms of coercion or force within families and communities. Broadly speaking, there are two main types of child trafficking: sex trafficking and labor trafficking. The latter type includes things like domestic servitude, field laborer, child soldiers, factory laborer, bridal and reproductive slavery, and organ trade etc.
