The Business of Sex Trafficking


Sex trafficking is a criminal business in which women and children are forced or coerced into providing sex services. An estimated 2.5 million people are victims of this modern-day form of slavery which has grown into an ugly and sophisticated $50 billion world wide business. Human trafficking is the fastest growing criminal industry in the world, despite the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, which went into effect on December 25, 2003.
