Trafficking in persons is a crime that affects nearly every country in the world. The 2014 Global Report on Trafficking in Persons is the second in a biennial series of UNODC reports on this topic. The Report, which is primarily based on officially reported information from Governments across the world, focuses on patterns and flows of trafficking in persons at the global, regional and national levels. The aim of the Report is twofold: firstly, to foster a better understanding of this crime, and secondly, to strengthen the collective response to it. This edition also includes the Country Profiles showing statistical data for the years 2010 through to 2013 in some cases.



Global overview

In the United Nations Global Plan of Action to Combat Trafficking in Persons, Member States requested for the present report to focus on the patterns and flows of trafficking in persons. ‘Patterns’ refer to the profiles of traffickers and victims; that is, their citizenship, age and gender as well as the forms of exploitation. ‘Flows’ refer to the geographic dimension of trafficking, with a ‘flow’ defined as one origin country and one destination country with at least five detected victims during the 2010-2012 reporting period.
