human trafficking

Human trafficking is when people are transported illegally from one country to another under threats or actual force. Victims can end up being used for forced labour or prostitution, for example. With people smuggling, the people involved enter an agreement with a smuggler to make a journey illegally in return for money and are therefore complicit in the movement.
