Europe

 

Central and South Eastern Europe is predominantly reported to be an origin sub-region with victims trafficked to, and exploited in Western Europe. A number of sources also refer to states in Central and South Eastern Europe as destination countries for victims from the sub-region, indicating that intra-regional human trafficking is a problem.


To a lesser extent, Central and South Eastern Europe is reported as a destination sub-region, with victims trafficked mainly from the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS). It is also reported to be a main transit sub-region.


Western Europe is mainly a destination sub-region. Victims trafficked here mainly originate from Central and South Eastern Europe countries followed by the CIS, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean.
