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.



Executive summary

The crime of trafficking in persons affects virtually every country in every region of the world. Between 2010 and 2012, victims with 152 different citizenships were identified in 124 countries across the globe. Moreover, trafficking flows - imaginary lines that connect the same origin country and destination country of at least five detected victims – criss-cross the world. UNODC has identified at least 510 flows. These are minimum figures as they are based on official data reported by national authorities. These official figures represent only the visible part of the trafficking phenomenon and the actual figures are likely to be far higher.
