What Is People Trafficking?

New Zealand’s Inter-Agency Trafficking in Persons Operations Group has produced a resource to explain in very clear terms and image format, just what people trafficking is.

Many will not realise it, but people trafficking is happening here in New Zealand, to both migrants and to New Zealand citizens/residents. People trafficking does not have to involve crossing a border and often happens entirely within a country. People trafficking is a crime that involves deceiving or coercing someone in order to exploit them.

This resource looks at:

  • What are the common types of exploitation that people are trafficked for?
  • Where might I see people trafficking?
  • What are the indicators of people trafficking?
  • What do I do if I suspect people trafficking?

The resource can be found here. (pdf 1.24MB)
