Human Trafficking Countries Ranking and List: Worldwide Country Statistics

We present you with the list of human trafficking countries ranking and list: worldwide country statistics. Insider Monkey has recently published an arresting and edifying article about it. Without a shadow of a doubt, it represents the gravest human rights violation. Those who are the victims of human trafficking are deprived of their fundamental rights, reducing them to mere objects. The very moment they are denied the possibility to act on their own, they become less human. Traffickers certainly see their victims as not human. Otherwise, they would not subject them to such degrading treatment. Given that, more often than not, victims are not in the position to seek help, it is our duty to continually point to the problem and urge policymakers to draft policies that would effectively tackle the problem, thereby giving the voice to those who are silenced.

Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three human trafficking countries ranking and list: worldwide country statistics from their list.

The first country can be Laos for  now. The country has an alarmingly high rate of human trafficking. It is the source country for women and girls who are subject to sexual exploitation in neighboring countries. Internal trafficking also presents itself as a serious issue. Things look hopeful, as the government of Laos is making efforts at tackling the issue. The next country should be Belarus. It is among European countries with highest rates of human trafficking. Despite the fact that there are severe human rights violations resulting from trafficking in persons, the government is not putting any efforts into policy change that would help in solving the problem. It appears that there is no reason to hope for an improvement. Forced prostitution is the biggest problem. At last, but not least we are mentioning Myanmar. In the past six years, the country was categorized as Tier 2 Watchlist for five times! It is a source country for women and children who are forced into prostitution in other countries, and for men who are subject to forced labor. Furthermore, children are often forced into begging on the streets of neighboring countries. Even the state actor, the military of Myanmar, is involved in human rights violations, as it is the major perpetrator of forced labor.
