15 Impression of Human Trafficking Leads to social exclusion and crime Erodes human capital Undermines public health Undermines government authority Proceeds sustains illicit activities that constitute a threat to democratic governance and rule of law There is a nexus between organized criminal groups involved in trafficking (drugs firearms and human) and terrorism, as proceeds of one venture is used to finance the other through elaborate money laundering. Human trafficking does not respect border and it does not respect people It is horrific abuse of, and violence against women and children in particular 15
