Trafficking in Women and Children

The trafficking of human persons is a crime and outrage against the dignity of human persons and cries for a response nationally and globally. Many nations have declared trafficking a crime and are seeking to comply with the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime which defines trafficking as:

'Trafficking in persons' shall mean the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.
(Article 3, UN Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention Against Transnational Organized Crime).
Dominicans at the United Nations/New York advocate against trafficking through the Working Group on Girls as well as through the NGO Committee on Migration.
