Human trafficking touches almost every country in the world. However, each country plays a different role in propagating the crime. There are source, transit and destination countries. Last week I wrote a post about the top sourcing countries. This week, I’m covering the top destination. Again, this is purely informational and not a reason for any one country to feel better or worse. Whatever side of the coin your country falls, it contributes to this crime and all nations together, must work to put an end to it.
A destination country is the final stop in a trafficked victim’s journey – it is the country where they are ultimately stolen to.
According to UNODC’s 2012 Trafficking in Persons: Global Patterns report:
Countries that are the highest culprits for being the final destination of trafficked victims are:
Belgium, Germany, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, Thailand, Turkey, USA
As already mentioned, every country is involved one way or another. Many countries serve as final destinations or ultimate consumers of human trafficking, these listed, just happen to be the largest.
