I realized that I have written about Human Trafficking, but have not defined it. The goal of today's post is to define human trafficking, using the U.S. Department of State's definition, as well as the United Nation's definition. When defining human trafficking, most countries have their own definition, as does the United Nations.
When defining trafficking, it must have one element from each of the three criteria: Process (act), Means, and Goal (purpose) (as seen below).
Process is: recruitment or transferring or transporting or harboring.
Means include: threat or force or fraud or coercion or abduction
Goal = sex or labor or organ or prostitution or debt bondage or slavery or involuntary servitude or pornography.
