Abstract

Human trafficking affects every country in the world regardless of a country's history, laws, economic status, anti-trafficking efforts, or religious beliefs. Trafficking in persons has largely resulted from mass globalization during the 20th century. Human trafficking is a violation of the most fundamental human rights and must be addressed in a critical way in order to protect and prevent further trafficking. Child trafficking is one aspect of the trafficking of persons which fundamentally violates the rights of children. Child trafficking and exploitation is currently plaguing many countries including The Republic of Cameroon. Both the practices to combat trafficking and progress trafficking are evident with reference to the government of Cameroon and Cameroonian society. The objective of this project is to identify and explain how the government of Cameroon and its citizens are both combating and progressing child trafficking and exploitation.
