Human trafficking is often thought of as a taboo topic. People know it happens, yet there is very little done to prevent it. Within the United States only 10% of police stations are equipped to deal with cases of human trafficking. If the United States, of the largest distribution countries, is ill prepared, imagine what protocols third world countries have in place. Human trafficking is not a crime which discriminates against gender, race, economic status, or age; over 161 countries have also come forward stating that there have been incidents concerning human trafficking. In order to fully understand this horrific crime, it is important to understand the statistics, to understand the victims and their stories. There are offices, offices such as the Office of Higher Commissioner for Human Rights, which can help save these victims from a life of slavery. This White Paper offers enlightening information and insightful recommendations to help combat the traffickers in order to save millions of lives.
