Transnational Trafficking of Women and Girls

Gad J. Bensinger, Loyola University, Chicago

Trafficking of women for commercial sexual exploitation is a growing international problem that is attracting wide attention from certain governments, especially the U.S., the U.N., Non-Governmental Organizations and other public and private agencies. The paper will discuss the problem of trafficking in some of the so-called "destination countries" and summarize the latest anti-trafficking measures adopted by the U.S., the U.N., and several individual countries in Europe, Asia and Africa.
