A VICTIM OF TRAFFICKING IN HUMAN BEINGS: VICTIMOLOGICAL PROBLEMS

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

Criminal actions have led to a significant impact on the sense of security of the individual and the society. This is
particularly affected by cases of trafficking in human beings. The concept of trafficking in human beings has changed
significantly over time, and the use of people sold has also changed. Today, in the open world, human trafficking is
taking a new turn and is endangering the freedom, security and life of individuals. Traffickers, unlike slaveholders of
ancient times, use new and modern methods and techniques to entice and subdue victims. In the article the author
analyses the victimological aspects of human trafficking. This issue is particularly topical in Latvia. One of the
important tasks of law enforcement authorities is the identification and detection of potential victims of trafficking, the
provision of legal protection for victims and systematic and targeted preventive work with them. The fewer people will
be able to become victims of human trafficking, the fewer such cases will be.
The author concludes that although in recent years there has been a progress in combating trafficking in human being in
Latvia, the implementation of preventive measures and identification of a victim is not sufficient at the same time.
