In Module 1, we introduced the acts, means, and purpose of human trafficking processes. Legally, a trafficker is considered anyone that takes part in any step of the trafficking process. Traffickers are generally categorized into three groups: members of large criminal organizations, members of small criminal groups, or individuals, including youth’s peers.
We use the phrase “people who exploit for personal gain,” or “persons seeking to exploit,” in part because the term “trafficker” tends to carry connotations that can complicate our perspective and make it increasingly difficult to identify exploitative circumstances.
Reflection 2 invites you to explore your perspective on the word trafficker.
