If people are recruited or trafficked in order to exploit them for certain work, this is "trafficking in human beings for the purpose of labour exploitation". Switzerland is also both a destination and transit country for victims of human trafficking.
18 October is the European Day against Trafficking in Human Beings. Events are organized around this day throughout Switzerland to raise awareness of these crimes, which usually take place in secret.
