Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2016

“Trafficking for sexual exploitation and for forced labor remain the most prominently detected forms, but victims are also being trafficked to be used as beggars, for forced or sham marriages, benefit fraud, or production of pornography,” said UNODC Executive Director Yury Fedotov in presenting the report.

2016 Global Report TIP2016  report includes a thematic chapter focusing on the connections between trafficking in persons, migration, and conflict.

Armed groups and criminal organizations often engage in trafficking in their territories of operation, coercing women and girls into marriages or sexual slavery, and pressing men and boys to act as forced labor or combatants.
