Push and Pull Factors of Trafficking

The following are some of the primary factors that cause the environment of trafficking to flourish in the Philippines:

– Poverty

– Globalization

– Modernization & Development Schemes

– Out-migration networks

– Corruption & Collaboration

– Breakdown of Families

– Lack of Education & Information

– Aftermath of War

– Culture

The interplay of these factors, with increasing poverty as the major catalyst, results in conditions favorable to trafficking of children within the country and across borders.
