The Surge of Human Sex Trafficking in China

This abstract has open access
Abstract Summary

Numerous forms of modern slavery and human sex trafficking constitute a global billion-dollar industry. China is one of the largest factors fueling this industry. The Chinese government’s inefficient prevention and investigation measures have caused an exponential rise in human sex trafficking. Over forty-four percent of the Chinese population is vulnerable to modern slavery. Asia as a whike accounts for over half of all people being trafficked in the world. This poster highlights the measures that are expected to be most effective in improving procedures to prevent sex trafficking in China. While the effects of the government’s birth limitation policy and closed borders are irreversible, limited screening procedures and vague laws regarding sex trafficking can be reformed. If active measures are not taken to address the rise of sex trafficking in China, the country will suffer from higher rates of HIV/Aids and economical remittance losses.
