Human trafficking is often understood as the actions that take place when human beings are bought and sold for different purposes, including but not limited to, sexual exploitation, labour exploitation, and forced marriage. Human trafficking involves the recruiting, transporting, receiving, holding, concealing or exercising control over the movements of a person. Human trafficking occurs throughout a wide spectrum where traffickers exploit a human being for personal or financial benefits. Traffickers will use force, the threat of force and other forms of coercion to gain control over others. Traffickers may use this control to have people engage in illegal activity compromising their safety and wellbeing. It’s crucial to understand human trafficking is always involuntary, because consent cannot be freely given through coercion, deception and manipulation.
