Human Trafficking

No nation is immune from the curse of human trafficking. The most powerful nation to the simplest of nations are not immune from modern day slavery. Some nations do not even know the true definition of what human trafficking is. The main contributors to human trafficking are governmental corruption, economic and social crisis within each nation's borders. Now most nations are coming together to learn more about the slavery and how to battle it internally and abroad. What is human trafficking?

The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation includes, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs. Albert, S., Aronowitz, A., Fowke, M., Sarrica, F., Symalzek, J. (2006 p.50)

Greetings!

You have found a lot of information about a powerful subject. Here are some editing tips:

The most powerful nation to the simplest of nations are not immune from modern day slavery. - Should be "is not immune" because your subject is singular.

Albert, S., Aronowitz, A., Fowke, M., Sarrica, F., Symalzek, J. (2006 p.50)+ - In-text parenthetical citations have their own particular form, which is different from the form used in the References section. Use the authors' last names only, like this: (Albert, Aronowitz, Fowke, Sarrica & Symalzek, 2006.)

57 years after of [typo?] the United Nations Universal Declaration Human Rights that all men and woman are born free and are to have equal rights passed in 1948 (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 2003). - This is a sentence fragment; also, do not begin a sentence with a numeral; write out the word "Fifty-seven." You do this several times throughout the essay; be sure to correct them all.

A 21 year old Philippine girl tried to get a good job as a dance troupe in Japan. - A "troupe" is, by definition, a group. She tried to get a job "in" or "with" a troupe.

This starts of a form of slavery all on it's own. - The possessive form of "its" does not have an apostrophe.

The shame the young girl feels and the betrayal of her family, because she was raped and is considered dirty. - Sentence fragment.

40 days Florencia was locked up in the factory working long hours finally escaped. - This seems to have some words missing.

These types of conditions are breading grounds for human trafficking. - "breeding"

These conditions alone will be an open a door-for trafficking of humans - I think you meant "will be an open door for"

I'm not sure why your "Garland" entry in the References list has a paragraph of text with it...?

There are many places online where you can get specific instruction on how to cite APA style, with examples which are very helpful.

57 years after of the United Nations Universal Declaration Human Rights that all men and woman are born free and are to have equal rights passed in 1948 (Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 2003). This declaration is a great accomplishment, but with no teeth. Many of the participating nations in the United Nations do not even apply this very law to their own people. 57 years should not be acceptable for anyone's race, or culture not to be enslaved or exploited.

Half a century has gone by only to find all nations are still trying to understand what human trafficking is. Humanity has evolved enormous strides only to still practice some of the earliest crimes known to man. There is no excuse for this to be even happening in this day and age. There are still scores of issues with human...
