Child trafficking, widespread and unpunished
Selling children into slavery – it is one of the world’s most heinous crimes and it is on the rise.
By its very nature, trafficking is extremely hard to quantify – conservative estimates put the number of children trafficked globally at 1.2 million and those who are forced into slavery at 5.5 million.
Guests are Colin Walker, Deputy Director of the UK branch of the NGO ECPAT leading rights organisation for children, and Rani Hong, UN.GIFT Special Advisor on human trafficking and founder of the Tronie Foundation.

Trafficking in human beings – victims’ testimonies
Trafficking is no fairy tale
The Finnish Ombudsman for Minorities and the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) launched a campaign against trafficking in December 2012.
The campaign video was a new version of a well-known Finnish tango, Satumaa, interpreted by Paula Vesala and Jori Sjöroos.
For more information, please visit the Campaign website: http://ihmiskauppaeiolesatua.fi/
The campaign reveals the staggering size and scope of transnational organized crime, a business generating $ 870 billion annually. That amount is equivalent to around 1.5 per cent of global GDP, or 6 times the budget for official development assistance, or 7 per cent of the world’s exports.
Organized crime spares no part of the world and preys on the vulnerable through force and deception. Human trafficking victims alone number 2.4 million, for example, and each year 1.5 million people are victims of identity theft.
