Trafficking experiences and violence victimization of sex-trafficked young women in Cambodia

While evidence suggests that trafficking of women and girls for commercial sex work (CSW), or sex trafficking, is prevalent in Cambodia, studies to date have not identified the actors perpetrating this gender-based crime. Moreover, the vulnerabilities faced by trafficked women and girls—such as violence victimization or risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and HIV—are unclear in this Cambodian context; this makes design of successful efforts to protect women at risk of being trafficked and provision of assistance to those already victimized less likely.
