Prior to the World Cup in Germany in 2006, there was considerable international concern that this event would contribute to a sharp increase in trafficking for sexual exploitation. This report investigates whether the number of victims of human trafficking for sexual exploitation increased during this sporting event. All data, information and experts’ statements that are available to date strongly indicate that an increase in human trafficking, during and after the World Cup did not actually occur.

Introduction

The general objective of this pilot research project is to investigate whether there is any evidence to suggest that the number of victims of trafficking (VoT) for sexual exploitation increased during the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Research findings are intended to help formulate recommendations to combat trafficking during similar major events, including Olympic Games and World Cups, in the future and to provide an important tool for policymakers and relevant authorities and NGOs.
