The phenomenon of human trafficking has spread remarkably during the recent period as no country is safe from it, especially with the growth of international and non-international armed conflicts and the deterioration of economic conditions in some countries, especially the third world countries that provide organized crime gangs with living conditions that facilitated the existence of renewable resources of victims in order to make huge sums of money behind their exploitation. The United Nations has classified this trade as the third largest illegal trade in the world after arms smuggling and drug trafficking, as its activities generate huge profits estimated at billions, at the expense of the most vulnerable groups of society to exploitation, namely women and children. It is also one of the forms of transnational organized crime that its scope has expanded significantly in recent years, through which millions of people are transported across international borders annually to be trafficked. The study sheds light on the phenomenon of human trafficking by highlighting its characteristics and types, as well as the most important international and Arab legislations aimed at strengthening international and Arab cooperation to combat crime that is employing technology to commit its acts. The study recommends the importance of keeping pace with Arab legislation with scientific and technological developments employed by criminal organizations in committing human trafficking crimes and the need to educate and raise awareness of community members about the dangers of human trafficking on the social peace by involving the media, schools and civil society organizations.
