Preventing & Responding to Human Trafficking and the Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Children - an E-Learning by ECPAT-USA

Traffickers are known to use hotels, airlines, and other travel infrastructure to exploit or transport their victims. They book hotel and motel rooms when setting up encounters between victims of sex trafficking and those individuals purchasing sex. They move victims to and from locations by way of commercial air travel. Labor trafficking is also present in both the travel industry's workforce and in the supply chain of its products. This criminal activity is not only a violation of human rights, it also presents a great risk for the safety and security of travelers. Traffickers capitalize on the lack of awareness around human trafficking within the travel and hospitality industry. All too often, they continue to exploit victims because staff, managers, and executives do not know what to look for.  

Fortunately, there are many ways travel and meeting professionals can prevent and combat human trafficking. This 25-minute online training program developed by ECPAT-USA discusses the intersections between human trafficking and the travel industry. ECPAT-USA also offers free tools and resources that can be used in conjunction with the training to help companies combat trafficking and inform clients and suppliers of their commitment.
