What is your part in human trafficking? – Women’s lives bought and sold


Time: 19:30 – 21:00
Pressing global challenges on women’s rights demand innovative and inspiring ideas for solutions. Motivated by the ideals that The Hague as the City of Peace and Justice represents, what better opportunity to present such ideas to the world than the 3rd World Conference of Women’s shelters.

Human trafficking is putting or keeping someone in an exploitative situation for profit.

It can happen to anyone, but women are especially vulnerable. It is a serious crime that occurs in every country in the world and can take place anywhere; on farms, in factories, in brothels, and in private homes.

Human trafficking is driven by the demand for cheap goods, services and labour and the supply of vulnerable people. Whilst trafficking for sexual exploitation is widely reported, it is estimated that there are nine times the number of people who are exploited for their labour.

We may contribute to this exploitation and we all have a role to play in ending this injustice: Governments, businesses and individuals. How?
