Human trafficking is a crime that happens around the world. It is an international problem, and impacts many countries at the national level as well. Due to the large number of trafficking victims, the United Nations Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons Especially Women and Children (henceforth, the Protocol) went into effect in 2003 to supplement the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime.

One of the most important aspects of the Protocol was the adoption of the concept of trafficking in persons, as it had not been clearly defined. However, this continues to be a problem in many countries when it comes to passing legislation.
