The picture they painted was at times a bleak one.
Conservative statistics estimate that 1 million persons are trafficked each year.Most of these are women and young girls , who are sold into prostitution.ActionAid , a UK-based NGO which works at the grassroots level throught South Asia defines trafficking as the international trade of persons , where abduction , coercion , violence and exploitation take place both in sexual and economic ways.Since the Beijing Platform for Action , there has been an increased awareness about violence against women as a matter for governmental and international action.

Trafficking is the buying and selling of human beings , of boys and girls , of men and women , said Botti.It is about human rights , migration , the economy.It is about corruption..The crossborder exchange of boys and girls does not occur in a vaccum.In fact , in many cases , border police are complicit actors in these crimes , accepting payoffs from procurers.What has become clear through the research conducted over the past five years is that trafficking is a global phenomenon and that it is an issue of universal human rights.MORE.
