According to the Women's Freedom Forum, cases of human trafficking crimes have seen an increase over the last eight years in Iran. This increase has drastically affected prostitution rates and the rates of sexual exploitation of minors. See Women's Freedom Forum, Human Trafficking in Iran (2010), available as a link below. Iran, due to its unemployment and inflation rates, has become an international source, transit, and destination for global human trafficking. See Martin Patt, Human Trafficking and Modern-day Slavery (2000-2018), available as a link below.
