Human trafficking is highly focused on a corrupted problem that is classified as the third most profitable crime in the world. Being recognised on a vast scale in society, this issue overtly covers over a wide range of social, political, economic and legal problems involved with human trafficking. However, human trafficking means ‘the action or practice of illegally transporting people from country to country for either child labour, sexual abuse or even forced labour’. 

As this may be, the subject at hand on a global scale is often overlooked by most nations therefore nothing is being done to help reduce this from occurring. In order to accomplish a reasonable, responsive and informative goal towards trafficking I in trust in myself and to others to help raise the awareness on a global scale in the hopes that it eliminates and disregards all of the targeted people who are associated within the human trafficking business.

From constant and occurring development of human trafficking arising from all across world, I have reason to say that change needs to occur immediately in every country due to the statistics of human trafficking. In saying this, government superpowers, corporations, legal systems and society all need a sophisticated modification towards their legal obligations before human trafficking depletes the youth of society and becomes the number one global issue.  


Along with this change in the system there are various reasons embedded within trafficking that makes it the most feared and exploited crime. From sex trafficking, violation of human rights, child labour and trafficking, slavery, drug trafficking and many other reasons that creates this terrible crime, it has become clear that change is most indefinitely needed worldwide. However, the three most commons reasons of change in human trafficking is in the direct violation of human rights (no consent, prostitution, auctioning off etc.), child labour, trafficking and also slavery.

From the exploitation of individuals involved in human trafficking over the years, intercontinental exertions in order to help address the issue can be traced right back to a century ago. Before the legal obligation of modern human right systems existed, international countries on a global scale still had developed a type of legal framework that revolved around the exploitation of human trafficking and how it be change in society. International agreement on what constitutes “trafficking in persons” is very recent. 

In fact, it was not until the late 1990's that states began the task of separating out trafficking from other practices with which it was commonly associated such as facilitated irregular migration.  
The first-ever agreed definition of trafficking was incorporated into the 2000 Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons, Especially Women and Children, supplementing the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organised Crime (Trafficking Protocol).  

As this issue is in direct violation of human rights in society, governments are beginning to take into action a kind of essential change to start preventing and dealing with trafficking and their victims. Another indirect violation of human rights involves with the mislead ‘Consent’ stance in these situations. As men and woman of all equality types, the International human rights law has always recognised that the intrinsic inalienability of personal 4 freedom renders consent irrelevant to a situation in which that personal freedom is taken away. 

This understanding is reflected in the “means” element of the definition of trafficking. As noted by the drafters of the Trafficking Protocol: “once it is established that deception, coercion, force or other prohibited means were used, consent is irrelevant and cannot be used as a defence.”

From past historical slavery to modern day trafficking slavery in society, in several ways the changes involved with the rising issue has differed in certain ways that has created larger economic pandemics. Throughout some time, ‘trafficking’ has been viewed as a profit-driven business responding to a demand in the eye of the public.   
As bad as slavery and trafficking goes, calling something ‘slavery’ helps to raise attention and to galvanise action, but the main question is will this even help the world’s poor and distressed to end their misery. The simple answer would be no. 

Ending slavery or forced labour requires targeted actions to change law, to bring offenders to justice, to protect victims and to empower those at risk. Through this statement, even though it requires a lot of manpower and government decisions to help raise the awareness and even to help end this conflict worldwide.

In order for this issue to have a major change the world countries, leaders, communities and people all start to take into action of trafficking on a high level the outcome will start to resolve it slowly but prominently over the next coming years. However, Since the establishment of Australia’s strategy to combat human trafficking and slavery, the Government has provided more than $150 million to support a range of domestic, regional, and international initiatives.  


In addition to this, from the illegal solicitation of child, human, sex, slavery and drug trafficking on a global scale is it clear as day that countries across the hemisphere not only Australia must create and enforce different and effective laws aiming to fight against trafficking. International legal instruments relating to child trafficking are forgotten and often poorly enforced by national governments. The more punishments incurred for trafficking, the more traffickers will hesitate before acting. When the survivors of human trafficking often suffer severe psychological damage they still feel as though their hearts and spirits have been assaulted as much as their bodies have been. 

If nothing starts to happen for prevention they will still feel ashamed of what has happened to them. However, if governments, corporations and consumers all band together to provide an effective solution we will not only see a brighter future for the world towards the resolution and reduction of human trafficking, but will we be able to help victims provide a safe environment where children, woman and men can all recover and share happier times. By having an effective plan in place traffickers will slowly start to decline and loss businesses leaving them with no choice to quit before criminal records, jail time and wanted lists are set in place for them.
