Abstract

Abstract: In this paper the issue of human trafficking, in particular the trafficking of women and girls, across national and international borders will be discussed with a literature review to identify the extent of the problem. There are many facets associated with human trafficking that will be acknowledged but not addressed. The problem of human trafficking will identify geographical areas and specific countries that are both source, transit and destination countries for human trafficking, that include trafficking for prostitution purposes. In addition, the literature review will identify that race, ethnicity, socioeconomic, cultural and religious factors support human trafficking. Keywords: human trafficking; trafficked women; child prostitution; human rights; modern slavery
