What is trafficking in persons?

Trafficking in persons is a violation of human rights and undermining human dignity and integrity, being a threat to individual security and to social and moral values.
This type of crime directly affects the individual by the impact it has on one of the fundamental individual rights, that is freedom. As a result the society as a whole is negatively affected by corruption, violent acts and by the development of criminal groups and mechanisms obtaining substantial profits from this type of activity. All these aspects represent a threat to economic stability and regional security.
Although it is on the international agenda since 2000, trafficking in persons, as a social phenomenon and crime, remains a reality that requires a substantial and continuous effort by the international public bodies, but also by the entire society.
Increased demand for sexual services, cheap labor, the desire for profit with minimum investment, are all premises for increased network traffic activity.
Acting against trafficking in persons involves several aspects: as illegal economic activity, trafficking in persons is one of the main financial resources of organized crime; as a major infringement of fundamental human rights is an offense against human dignity that Romania cannot overlook; as illegal border activity, it is an element that threatens security and an important field of cooperation within the EU and in partnership with states, regions and international organizations.
Thus, decision makers in the European Union have launched an appeal to the international community, including the institutions at regional and national level, non-governmental organizations, international and other civil society organizations and to the EU institutions and agencies, so as to counter the challenges posed by the transnational crime and to provide a clear and comprehensive response through multi-disciplinary policies, coherent and coordinated approach involving all actors concerned from the countries of origin, transit and destination. Such an explicit response must be consistent with human rights standards, while paying particular attention to trafficking in women and children in accordance with the international instruments.
