MAST is excited to support this webinar which aims to put a spotlight on human trafficking in Asia.
Human trafficking is defined by the United Nations as the “recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring, or receipt of persons by improper means (such as force, abduction, fraud, or coercion) for an improper purpose including forced labor or sexual exploitation.” There are many forms of human trafficking today.
