Migration and human trafficking

The living and working conditions of migrants are often catastrophic. The line between migration and human trafficking is blurred. AWO International is committed to self-determined and safe migration.

 

 

More than 70 million people worldwide have been forced to flee war, violence and hopelessness. About 230 million people live as migrants far away from their home countries. Especially for migrant workers, migration often ends in precarious working conditions and exploitation. An estimated 30 million people are affected by human trafficking and forced labour.
