A social trend that should trigger an emotional reaction in Indonesia as a nation
that has enjoyed independence for the past 68 years, is none other than human
trafficking. Indonesia is listed at 114 in the register of this modern form of slavery
with around 220 thousand victims9
. Globally, there are around 29.8 million victims of human trafficking. Indonesia
is one of the 17 source, transit and destination countries, involving criminal
activities such as sex slavery, forced labour and child procurement. This situation
is pretty evenly spread among all of Indonesia’s Provinces.
The roots, the process
and a way forward are highlighted in this brief study.

Kata-kata Kunci: Human trafficking, perbudakan, migrasi, keluhuran
matarbat manusia, hak asasi manusia.
