Trafficking in persons is an act of violence and a crime that affects the lives and human rights of millions of people in almost every country of the world and deprives them of their human dignity. Although the most-known form of trafficking in persons is considered to be linked with sexual exploitation, millions of people are also trafficked for the purposes of forced labor, domestic servitude, child begging or organ harvesting, criminal exploitation and coercion by terrorist organizations.
