Victims of Human Trafficking

Preview

Human trafficking has become a growing problem at both the international level and the domestic level in the United States. Trafficking is a form of human slavery, manifested largely through the sex industry but also in labor. International concerns cover sex and labor slavery, as well as organ and adoption trafficking. Domestic concerns about human trafficking have focused on the prostitution of young women or children, primarily by pimps and rings of traffickers. Child sex tourism is a national as well as international problem. Concerns about mental health and public health, as well as policies, legal procedures, and law enforcement issues, are covered.
