Vatican addresses ways to stop human trafficking

"Trafficking affects people around the world. There are no borders. Same with law enforcement. We work with our partners to try and combat human trafficking.”

Card. Peter Turkson
Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace 
"This is the police working with the Church to deal with a problem in society. It's a recognition by both sides that they can't do it all alone.”

On a global scale, the internet has made  human trafficking easier for criminals. While remaining virtually anonymous they can coordinate the purchase, sale and even transportation of their victims and their victimizers. In some cases, it's all done under a disguise for jobs that seem too good to be true.

"These crimes are being perpetrated on the internet. Victims are being recruited and people who wish to engage in these crimes are being recruited as well. Law enforcement has worked together so that globally we can attack the problem.”

Even though most people associate human trafficking with prostitution, experts say that's not the case at all. In some countries, people are forced to work for free in lucrative businesses, like the deep fishing market. The reason behind this is because often not easy to legitimately recruit people for that dangerous market. When it comes to prostitution, big world events like the world cup, pose a challenge.

"Human trafficking is happening every day throughout the world. During special events you may see an influx of people who have been recruited for human trafficking. But when that event is over, those people are still being victimized in other areas.”

By combining resources, these experts hope they can work together and bring those responsible to justice while helping the victims reclaim their lives.
