- Human trafficking and other forms of modern slavery are often described as issues that are hidden in plain sight. Due to the veiled nature of these types of exploitation, identifying victims in Australia proves difficult.
- It is estimated that currently only 1 in 5 victims of human trafficking and modern slavery are identified in Australia. This under-detection presents a significant problem in finding and supporting trafficking victims in Australia, as well as to understanding the full extent of the problem.
- According to the 2021 Trafficking in Persons report, Australia is a destination country for human trafficking. This means that individuals are trafficked into Australia from overseas for the purpose of exploitation. The report lists Australia as a Tier One country in it’s response to trafficking; Australia fully meets the minimum requirements to address human trafficking.
- Traffickers in Australia primarily exploit women and men in forced labour, and to a lesser extent, women and girls in sex trafficking. Traffickers exploit a small number of children, primarily teenage Australian and foreign girls, in sex trafficking within the country.
