Annotation: This paper examines the relationship between corruption and human trafficking in Brazil.
Abstract: Because both corruption and trafficking are very complex phenomena, a multivariate approach was used to analyse the relationship between corruption and trafficking. The results of the analysis show that, in Brazil, corruption is a causal factor in human trafficking. The paper offers a number of suggestions to help researchers and policymakers better understand where, how and when corruption facilitates trafficking in human beings in order to combat both crimes more effectively.
