The diversity and widespread execution of human trafficking make it difficult to regulate and prosecute. In the international effort to prosecute human trafficking, several guidelines and definitions of human trafficking have been provided: Article 3, paragraph (a) of the Protocol to Prevent, Suppress and Punish Trafficking in Persons defines Trafficking in Persons as 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 purposes of exploitation. Exploitation shall include, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others of other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs.
