Trafficking in persons, their transportation and sale for labour of any kind, whether within or outside national boundaries, is a modern form of slavery and a violation of the human rights of the victims. More than 700,000 persons are trafficked each year from one country to another, but the numbers are greatly magnified when in-country figures are taken into account. An overwhelming majority of victims are women, girls and boys.

The primary objective is commercial sexual exploitation. Giving expression to its concern, UNFPA organized a consultative meeting in Bratislava from 2-4 October 2002 to seek ways of addressing the problem. The present report is the outcome of this meeting.
