Launch of the 2021 OSCE Research on Discouraging the Demand that Fosters Trafficking for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation
While demand is a core driver in all forms of human trafficking, nowhere is it more pronounced and direct than in the case of trafficking for the purpose of sexual exploitation, given the lack of separation between the exploited victim and end user. It is the most lucrative form of trafficking, generating annual profits of nearly 100 billion USD globally.

As a result of a multi-year and multi-disciplinary research, involving analysis of legal and statistical data from over 50 national governments, as well as international and civil society organizations, the OSCE has released its 2021 paper “Discouraging the Demand that Fosters Trafficking for the Purpose of Sexual Exploitation”. The research details the centrality of the issue of demand to the problem of trafficking for sexual exploitation, outlines current criminal justice responses and prevention measures, and offers recommendations for national action.

The Webinar, organized by the Office of the OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings will offer an opportunity to share key conclusions and recommendations presented in the OSCE research. A panel discussion will be followed by a Q&A session.

Moderation and presentation of the OSCE Occasional Paper:
-Valiant Richey, OSCE Special Representative and Co-ordinator for Combating Trafficking in Human Beings.
