Inside Story

Can the world unite to beat human trafficking?

Millions of people across the globe are falling into the hands of a criminal enterprise that makes $150bn every year.

Children, women and men – all are victims of human trafficking.

It is women and girls, though, who are preyed upon more than anyone else.

As the UN tries to get the world to stand against modern-day slavery, we hear from victims and ask advocates on the front line if there’s really any way to end it.
