Abstract

In the Twentieth Century, the issue of the "trafficking of women" has become a more immediate concern in the international agenda. International institutions, such as the United Nations (UN), and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), and many more international NGOs have sought to address the trafficking of women as a violation of human rights. The Vienna Declaration of Human Rights condemns the trafficking of women and categorizes it as a violation of human rights. The trafficking of women is not only a human rights violation, it is another form of oppression of women caused by the development and growth plans of the international liberal economic order.
