Human Trafficking

Human trafficking involves the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion. This coercion results in an individual giving consent that allows another person to have control over her/him for purposes of exploitation. Exploitation can include prostitution, other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery, servitude or removal of organs. (Article 3, paragraph (a), United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons)
