Child Trafficking: Justice
and Legal Protection for Victims

Human trafficking differs from people smuggling. People smuggling places more emphasis on illegally sending people from one country to another which generates profits for the smugglers, in the sense that there is no exploitation. It is possible that there will be victims in people smuggling, but it is more of a risk from the activities carried out and not something that has been planned beforehand. Meanwhile, in human trafficking, from the beginning there has been a goal, namely that the person sent is the object of exploitation. Deception and coercion or violence are essential elements in human trafficking.
