Transnational Crime Issues: Human Trafficking [July 19, 2018]   [open pdf - 425KB]

"Trafficking in persons, or human trafficking, is a domestic and international phenomenon that refers to the subjection of men, women, and children to exploitative conditions that may be tantamount to slavery. In 2000, Congress defined 'severe forms of trafficking in persons' to mean sex trafficking in which a commercial sex act is induced by force, fraud, or coercion, or in which the person induced to perform such act has not attained 18 years of age; or the recruitment, harboring, transportation, provision, or obtaining of a person for labor or services, through the use of force, fraud, or coercion for the purpose of subjection to involuntary servitude, peonage, debt bondage, or slavery."
