This paper discusses the issue of human trafficking, focusing primarily on the issue of prostitution. According to the paper, this is just a modern day version of slavery as many are transported and sold against their will or without their knowledge, believing various false reasons for their movement. Many of the victims of human trafficking are underage minors.
From the Paper:"The human trafficking of women for the vice trades, mainly forced prostitution in a multitude of countries is a problem so monumental that most officials see no end to the problem. Resources are poor for the destruction of even the most large-scale offenders and most are under the false impression that the women arrive voluntarily, knowing the life they will follow when they arrive. It is a way to excuse the fact that all but the illegal immigration issues are perfectly acceptable and legal to many of the governments in the locations where the women end up. (Askew 328) Here are just a few statements from women who have been victims of human trafficking and forced prostitution."
