Human trafficking is a form of modern slavery, which involves moving victims from one place to another to supply slave labour or for purposes of sexual or other exploitation.

Hotel operators may individually claim to work to ethical business practices and openly condemn human trafficking but may be caught up in these activities non-the-less.

The chapter explores the nature of human trafficking and outlines the macro-, meso- and micro-level vulnerabilities that hotels face. It also explores examples and actions that can and are being taken by individual hotels and campaigns from within the hotel sector aimed at actively opposing all forms of human trafficking and modern slavery
