Trafficking in Human Beings. Visible and Invisible II. A quantitative report 2008-2012
Human traffickers usually do not operate alone. It is therefore essential to gain a clear picture of human trafficking networks. It is also important to devote greater attention to identifying persons and organisations that facilitate the crime, intentionally or otherwise. Investigation, prosecution and trial of perpetrators all benefit from a clear understanding of all the links in the human trafficking process, research by the National Rapporteur on Trafficking in Human Beings and Sexual Violence against Children has shown.
The report contains new information about victims and their protection, perpetrators and their methods, and about investigation, prosecution and trial. A lot of data are already available and facilitate an information-driven approach. The new statistics provide organisations with a context in which to reflect critically on their own efforts, and improve them where necessary.
