Human trafficking is considered one of the worst and most widespread violations of human rights today, with the International Labor Organization estimating that as of 2012, 18.7 million people worldwide are being exploited in the private economy. This talk examines the trafficking phenomenon in Russia, discussing both sex and labor trafficking, focusing primarily on the response of law enforcement agencies in the ten years since trafficking was criminalized in Russia.
