Trafficking in Human Beings

Izaskun Orbegozo, from the Basque Institute of Criminology, made a contribution to the 2012 Annual Conference of the European Society of Criminology, in the category “Victims and Victimization,” under the title “Trafficking in Human Beings”. Here is the abstract: Trafficking in human beings is a criminal activity expressed in different ways. Considering its evolving and dynamic character, it is important to identify its victims so that access to their basic rights can be guaranteed, including control and assistance mechanisms. Regardless its national or transnational context, it can only be approached adequately observing global strategies based on human rights. The objective of this poster is to present the situation of victims of human trafficking for sexual exploitation. In first place, the concept of victim will be defined. Secondly, legal initiatives of international and national protection will be presented. Finally, a real case study in Spain will be exposed underlining application of law to the concrete matter.
