The United Nations Office for Drugs and Crimes identifies human trafficking as “an act of recruiting, transporting, transferring, harboring, or receiving a person through a use of force, coercion, or other means, for the purpose of exploiting them” (UNODC).

Human trafficking is phrase that is used to describe the various ways in which a person “obtains or holds another person in compelled service” (U.S. Department of State, 2011, p. 9). There are several categories of human trafficking, such as forced labor, sex trafficking, and bond or debt labor. Human trafficking can affect adults and children, with the trafficking in children for sex being particularly egregious (p. 9-11).

Labor trafficking is mainly used in instances such as, nannies, maids/housekeepers, landscapers, nail salons, restaurants, industrial cleaners, construction, hospitals, magazine sales crews, flowers/candy sales crews, agricultural settings, and factory settings.

It's hard for me to conceive that there are bad people who abuse others for their own good. I think that the purest things that human beings possess are: his body, his soul, and the liberty to do his will. When an individual corrupts someone else soul, this one, becomes purest. When an individual corrupts someone else’s body, this one, becomes marked. When we hear about human trafficking what first comes to our mind is a girl from a different country who is been slaved against her will.

Human Trafficking is the illegal practice of selling human beings for the purpose of sexual acts, forced labor, or other forms of exploitation. It is argued that human trafficking originated near the 1400s when Europeans brought African slaves to the Americas. This exploitation was and still is occurring throughout the entire world. Many people that are trafficked include children, men, and women; children and women are usually only sold into prostitution while men are sold into forced labor. Anyone can be trafficked, there is no specific gender, race, or age that is being targeted.

With this being said, it is important that individuals start reacting to this epidemic as it is growing and could affect your politics, your neighbors, or even your children. Traffickers lure their victims through deception. The most popular forms are sex trafficking, labor trafficking, and organ trafficking (Tiurukanova, 2006). This epidemic is not limited to the United States. In 2012, Russia had a population of about 143.5 million people, and an estimated 490-540 thousand of those people were enslaved (“Russia”, 2013).

FACTORS RESPONSIBLE FOR HUMAN TRAFFICKING
The root causes of trafficking are various and often differ from one country to another. Trafficking is a complex, multi-level phenomenon that is often influenced by social, economic, cultural and other factors. Many of these factors are specific to individual trafficking patterns and to the countries in which they occur. There are, however, many factors that tend to be common to trafficking in general or found in a wide range of different regions, patterns or cases. These are the causes that are discussed in this report.

What is human trafficking and why is it important in relation to juveniles? Human trafficking is also known as child trafficking, prostitution or sex trafficking. The Polaris Project refers to human trafficking “as a form of modern-day slavery where people profit from the control and exploitation of others”. (Polaris Project, 2014, Page 1). I believe that is exactly what it is. Every day juveniles are taken and forced to do unimaginable things. Human trafficking is not only a matter dealing with illegal sexual acts but also deals with children being forced to do many other things against their will such as labor. With a few key steps we can help stop child trafficking

Human trafficking, as defined in the Merriam-Webster dictionary is “organized criminal activity in which human beings are treated as possessions to be controlled and exploited (as by being forced into prostitution or involuntary labor).” This definition does not cover the ways in which people are brought into this chaos; persuasion, some forced, and some even grow up in that environment.

The forced ownership of another human by humans has been practiced since the dawn of mankind. Greeks had slaves. Romans had slaves. Slaves were even an integral component of Chinese and Korean culture. Many people have been under the illusion that the slave trade was abolished with the African slave trade in the 19th century. But unfortunately, the trade in humans is very much alive under a different name, human trafficking.

These men, some as old as fifty, often pay as little as two dollars to partake in sexual intercourse with these school-aged children.
