Abstract: Human trafficking (especially wo men and young girls, though men count equally a mong the
victims) are recently developed worldwide. T he situation in certain regions of Central and Eastern Europe
(with the opening of borders, increasing unemployment and p overty, dislocations and r educing state control
structures) tend to favour the development of all forms of trafficking, especially of human trafficking for
sexual exploitation. To adopt appropriate measures to prevent and combat we have to know first the causes
and conditions that generate human beings trafficking. Analysis of case studies and police statistics allowed
the structuring of categories of c auses and conditions that generate and sustain the phenomenon of traff icking
in order to practice prostitution.

world, everything is in the range of organized crime. Developing new means of communication and
global economic imbalances have internationalized the trafficking. First there was trafficking in white

prosperous regions (especially to Western Europe), regardless of geographic location. Contradictory
dynamics in terms of social phenomena and political processes taking place in Eastern Europe,
appeared and developed as underground phenomenon of global dimensions, human trafficking.

are recently developed worldwide. When the desire to emigrate to the west can n ot be satisfied legal
migration candidates resort to intermediaries, who have often proved to be part of organized criminal
networks that were authorized to recruit persons for prostitution. Especially the situation in certain
regions of Central and Eastern Europe (with the opening of borders, increasing unemployment and
poverty, dislocations and reducing state control structures) tend to favour the development of all forms
of trafficking, especially of human trafficking for sexual exploitation. This development would not
have been possible without the development of specific networks, in terms of sexual exploitation.
Customers are true pillars of the system of prostitution. The client, the male buyer from the market of
prostitution, remains mostly anonymous or invisible. Trafficking in human beings respond to specific
requests from customers whose behaviour follows the evolution of European society. Therefore, it
seems that customers of the sex trade play a decisive role; the traffickers are trying above all to meet
the demand. Reasons leading to buying of sex are different: curiosity, sexual variation and
