Trafficking in Human Beings: Internet Recruitment
The rapid development in the use of information technologies, in particular the Internet, has given a new dimension to trafficking in human beings. The Internet is a fast, convenient and inexpensive way of connecting people between cities and across borders, but it also possesses the potential to be misused by criminals. Traffickers now have, literally at their fingertips, an effective, unrestricted and often anonymous means for recruiting their victims. Online employment agencies, in particular model or artist agencies and marriage bureaux, can all be ploys to lure potential victims. Internet chat websites are often used to befriend potential victims. The risks for young people to fall into the traffickers’ net have substantially increased. This study presents the current methods used by traffickers to recruit their victims via the Internet, and identifies legal, administrative and technical means used to combat this misuse.
