It is estimated that, across the globe, 2.4 million people are forced to endure the crime of human trafficking at any one time.

They do so in forced labour, in domestic servitude, in sexual exploitation, and in every country and every region of the world.

The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) estimates that the illegal activity is a global enterprise worth approximately US$ 32 billion dollars.

At the United Nations Tuesday, a forum was held on "Fighting Human Trafficking: Partnership and Innovation to End Violence against Women and Children".

Julie Walker reports.
