Authorities can help educate those who may fall victim to unscrupulous employment recruiters who are actually human traffickers, exposing their tactics so that they may become aware of this danger and thus not become another victim. This is particularly crucial for those who have cognitive disabilities because they are often targeted by human traffickers.
The online sexual exploitation of children presents new challenges for those seeking justice and help for victims especially for countries lacking training and resources to bring perpetrators to justice. The absence of trauma-informed care and services for child victims, especially boys (yes, boys are victims too), is a grave concern. Thankfully, governments, international organizations, and NGOs are working together to address this abuse of children. By using advanced cybercrime investigative skills, criminal laws and procedures that secure cyber evidence along with specialized training for prosecutors and judges, as well as cross-border law enforcement cooperation, prosecution of crimes committed online can proceed and specialized care for child victims can be given.
Lastly, all of us can become aware of human trafficking in our area, speak out against it and join the fight to stop it.
