This review, rather than addressing the dearth of literature on trafficking prior to 1990, reviewed primarily academic works, research reports, and various organizational publications available on the internet to identify the main parameters of the issue of trafficking and organized crime, as well as suggest some areas in which future research is needed.

This article includes:

  • Focusing on theoretical perspectives behind current analysis, and delve into the controversy surrounding the concept of "trading" or "trafficking"
  • Review the role that organized crime seems to be playing in the development of this phenomenon
  • Provide a legislative overview of the fight against trade in human beings
  • Exploring avenues of further research
