dc.description.abstract According to the Trafficking in Persons Report (“TIP Report”) issued by the U.S. State Department in 2007, “there are an estimated minimum of 10,000 to 20,000 trafficked victims internally per year.” Most victims of domestic trafficking are from rural and poor areas in China. Approximately 150 million people constitute China’s migrant population, and two-third of Chinese children in China live in rural areas. Local government officials often lack the requisite diligence to protect the rights of these migrant workers as well as the rights of their children. As a result, traffickers often target children of migrant workers, who often do not have time to take care of their children.16 International organizations report that more than ninety percent of the trafficking victims are women and children from Anhui, Guizhou, Henan, Hunan, Sichuan, and Yunnan Provinces. Those victims who are trafficked are sent to wealthier provinces in the east cost of China for forced labor and sexual exploitation. Although there is serious human trafficking within China as well as abroad, this paper will focus on child trafficking in China, mainly in rural and poor areas. The paper will offer some suggestions for anti-child trafficking issues. The article is organized in four parts. Part I will give an overview of child trafficking in China including the definitions, the primary causes of child trafficking, and the potential trafficking victims. Part II will address the Chinese government’s efforts to combat the trafficking in children as well as other international organizations’ cooperation regarding child trafficking. Part III will examine the specific problems occurring in rural areas. Finally, Part IV will offer policy suggestions on combating child trafficking in China such developing local policy, accelerating the drafting of the anti-corruption law and social society’s cooperation.
