ResumenPresented article is focused on legal and socio-political aspects of the issue of human trafficking worldwide. The growing scale of human trafficking is an issue widely discussed in scientific literature and on international agenda Human trafficking can occur within a country or trans-nationally. Human trafficking is a crime against the person because of the violation of the victim's rights of movement through coercion and because of their commercial exploitation. Human trafficking is the trade in people, and does not necessarily involve the movement of the person from one place to another. A significant part of this article is focused on international humanitarian aspects of human trafficking and human smuggling. Public service announcements have also proved useful for organizations combating human trafficking. In addition to many other endeavors, UNODC works to broadcast these announcements on local television and radio stations across the world. By providing regular access to information regarding human-trafficking, individuals are educated how to protect themselves and their families from being exploited.
