Thesis: Because human trafficking is worse than ever and also the fastest increasing criminal industry in today’s world, society needs to address the problem in serious ways.
A. Child slavery
B. Living conditions
Every year roughly 100,000 children are kidnapped and brought into human trafficking. This creates them to be opened up to the streets, diseases, and sexual abuse at an extremely young age. Most are used until they have passed from drug overdose or sexual disease. Some get away but most don’t escape because of the danger it will cause or they’ve been in it for so long they believe it is normal. Because human trafficking is worse than ever and also the fastest increasing criminal industry in today’s world, society needs to address the problem in serious ways.
Every year thousands of men, women, and children are abducted in violation of human rights. “Human trafficking is the recruitment, transportation, transfer and harboring or receipt of persons by means of threat and use of force or other forms of coercion.” Human trafficking has three whole elements which are; The Act (what us done), The Means (how it is done), and The Purpose (why it is done). 1,082 cases of sex trafficking and 1,615 of them were child cases, only 361 kids were returned home. If these abductions rise as they are now by 2020 we will have an estimate of 10,000 child abduction cases related to sex trafficking. The Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 is helping out in preventing child abduction in sex trafficking. It is one of the most effective so far.
...HumanTraffickingHumantrafficking is an illegal trade in human beings for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor. Humantrafficking is modern form of slavery and is the second largest fastest growing criminal industry in the world and profits billions of dollars in business. After the drug trade humantrafficking is the second biggest organized crime in the world. Millions of victims are entrapped and exploited every year in this modern form of slavery. Humantrafficking is a crime that strips people of their rights, ruins their dreams, and robs them of their dignity. Humantrafficking is a global problem and an issue and has been growing since the 1700’s.
The Trafficking Victims Protection Act was created in 2000 (Polaris Project, n.d.). The Act is broken down into three parts which are prevention, protection, and prosecution. The prevention portion of the acts states that there needs to be an office set up within the state department which is monitor and combat the trafficking issue. It also makes a point to inform the public that humantrafficking is out there to prevent potential victims, and insist on the creation of a task force that was special trained to fight it (Polaris Project, n.d.). Protection...
...Desire of HumanTraffickingHumantrafficking is considered to be the equivalent to modern day slavery. Even judging by the definition, humantrafficking has a very negative term. Humantrafficking, in many articles, is described as “the illegal trade of human beings, mainly for the purpose of commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor” (“HumanTrafficking”). Humantrafficking is becoming more and more of a problem and it has caught the attention of the UN. The UN is seeing that humantrafficking is affecting the economies of countries and is morally wrong. One of the countries that suffers significantly from humantrafficking is the Philippines.
The Philippines has become increasingly vulnerable to humantrafficking. This is partly due to the country’s economic difficulty. About 11 million Filipinos work overseas to help their family still living in the Philippines. A specific reason that Filipinos go overseas is because there are not many jobs in the Philippines. The economy leaves many Filipinos looking for jobs in different places that many believe will give them money to support their family. As a result of this, many female Filipinos are lured into human...
...Social issue: Humantrafficking…
In this report I will be writing about humantrafficking in Wales, Europe and other parts of the world.
Humantrafficking is an illegal activity. This involves selling, buying and trading of people. They are transported away from their families and communities and are forced to work against their own will. People are trafficked both between countries and within the borders of a state. It is also known as modern slavery and a form of sexual exploitation; where women’s, girls and children’s are forced to enter in the world of prostitution. Also involves forced labour or services, the removal of organs. People do this to make money, for some people it’s a business a way to make profit. (Ref 1)
I chose this topic for research because this is a very sensitive issue and it is shocking that humantrafficking still exists today. It’s a very upsetting matter that there is no value for human life and humans are used to make money which is really inhumane.
From BBC news October 2012, I have discovered that humantrafficking is increasing in the UK according to the new government testament. Studies say that organised criminal gangs are behind the illegal trade for sex, labour and domestic slavery. Most of the victims come from China, Nigeria and Eastern...
General Purpose: To Inform
Specific Purpose: To inform my audience about HumanTrafficking. What it is, where it is and who gets affected.
Central Idea/Thesis: Humantrafficking is overlooked but occurs on a more widespread basis then people believe.
A. Attention Getter: What if you were promised a better life with an advanced career, but instead were forced into prostitution? Many are unknowingly placed into this position by human traffickers.
B. Relation: Humantrafficking is simply a “modern day slave trade”. It transports and sells victims across borders, but also trafficking is the crime of carrying someone into slavery by force or fraud. “The victims of humantrafficking are young children, teenagers, men, and women; they are trafficked into the United States from Asia, Central and South America, and Eastern Europe” (Fact Sheet).

...An Invisible Issue: HumanTrafficking
Many people know the basics of what humantrafficking is but what they don’t know is how often it occurs. People do not spend time thinking about how many people humantrafficking affects or how to stop it. Humantrafficking is an issue that is highly ignored. Many people believe that the selling of people into slavery is not a problem in America or not a big problem at all. The truth is that there are large amounts of humantrafficking happening all over the world, even in the United States. People must be informed so society can begin to take action to stop the problem.
There are many cases of humantrafficking, mostly amongst women and children. Humantrafficking specifically of women is used internationally for economic gain. In order to transport women and children across the border force, coercion and fraud are used. Humantrafficking is compared to drug trafficking but less risky because the trades can easily seem more legitimate. Also with poverty and a lack of education increasing, the United Nations predicts that humantrafficking will increase rapidly with them (Veenstra 1472). People need to be taught about the haunting facts otherwise the rate of...
...success of human trade and exploitation of human beings for labor against their will, sexual favors and prostitution is now called “HumanTrafficking.” This will be going in depth on the truths and tall tales of “HumanTrafficking.” It has been a transnational phenomenon; it is the second up to the international drug trade in relation to organized crime. By estimators, it is projected to be a multi-billion dollar business that will affect several million people in virtually every country across the globe. It is equal to historical day’s slavery, but now with the 21st century twist of prostitution. Humantrafficking as a phenomenon that is widespread even in our new complex developed world. In the United States, for instance, more than twenty thousand people are forced into the modern day equivalent of slavery every year. Transnational crime has its roots that tie into most of everything such as stocks and the world economy.
Exploitation also includes forcing children into prostitution or other forms of sexual exploitation. Such as forced labor or services, or practices similar to slavery. Or in more extreme cases there are taken from their country brought to America illegally to be killed or have certain organs removed with no payment to the original owner of the organ. Studies also show that trafficked people often suffer from a high level of psychological and...
A bit of history on the topic HumanTrafficking and where it comes from. There are a lot of different arguments about when humantrafficking could have started. Some say that the slave trade that involved Africans being captured by slave traders and shipped across the Atlantic to America was the first humantrafficking. Others argue that the forced labor of children during the 1700s was the real beginning of what is now known as humantrafficking. Humantrafficking for sexual purposes was first legally recognized by the term 'white slavery'. According to Kristiina Kangaspunta the Executive Officer of the Applied Research Program of the UNICRI branch of the United Nations. 'White slavery' is when a white woman or girl- by the use of force, drugs, or by dishonesty- for sex which is unwanted by the woman or girl. Kristiina Kangapunta, has also argued that international governments began to discuss 'white slavery' after the transatlantic slave trade was made illegal. (T. Mills Kelly, HumanTrafficking in Historical Perspective, August 2012) (University of Nebraska–Lincoln, Conference Agenda, 2012)
Just about every country in the world is involved in the intertwined web of humantrafficking. Most victims of human...
...HumanTrafficking in the United States
American Intercontinental University Online
November 12, 2012
Until recently, in the US, the thought never occurred that Americans were trafficking Americans. The purpose of this paper is to inform the audience about the crime of humantrafficking that is happening in the US and also to persuade them to take a stand and help do something to combat this crime.
Thesis: Humantrafficking in the United States seems to be overlooked and not taken very seriously. Close to 20,000 women and children are trafficked in the US yearly. There seems to be nothing that can be done about it. Most times the victims are never heard from or seen again leaving very little of their known existence behind. Many think that this only happens in foreign countries, but many have been rudely awakened. According to the US Department of State, humantrafficking is any situation where one person “holds another person in compelled service” (2011). 2010 was the first year the US actually ranked itself in the Trafficking in Persons Report alongside other countries; this shows just how much this crime has been overlooked until recently.
Hypothesis: If those in authority were properly trained on what humantrafficking entails and also trained on how to spot the...
