Trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation is one of the most worrying and one of the largest illegal markets of our society. However, the demand that characterizes this market is still unexplored. Our research and this book, which presents its results, aim to contribute in filling the gap of knowledge by answering some basic and driving questions. The first set of questions refers to the client and his characteristics, the first objective of the study being to give a picture, though probably blurred, of the “who”. What are the main features of the client of trafficked prostitutes? Is he different from a “common” client? Why does he choose this segment of the market? And most of all, is he aware about the trafficking and the conditions of exploitation?

Abstract

Trafficking in human beings for sexual exploitation is one of the most worrying and one of the largest illegal markets of our society. However, the demand that characterizes this market is still unexplored. Our research and this book, which presents its results, aim to contribute in filling the gap of knowledge by answering some basic and driving questions. The first set of questions refers to the client and his characteristics, the first objective of the study being to give a picture, though probably blurred, of the “who”. What are the main features of the client of trafficked prostitutes? Is he different from a “common” client? Why does he choose this segment of the market? And most of all, is he aware about the trafficking and the conditions of exploitation?
