Chapter Summary

Under a European Union (EU) framework directive, all member states were obliged to amend their domestic legislation to bring it into line with the United Nations Protocol. It is clear is that human trafficking is no longer defined solely in relation to prostitution. Instead, emphasis has been given to the fact that trafficking can occur in all branches of industry, and even in the context of a marriage or partnership. Women entering Germany illegally are likely to be blackmailed for violating immigration laws. This vulnerability to blackmail is a core element of human trafficking. Human trafficking implies that there are elements of contemporary forms of slavery, debt bondage, serfdom, or forced labour. The chapter also talks about the possibility of applying the Italian model in Germany for improvement in the living conditions of those affected by trafficking.
