In the international background of the current period, Romania is included in the "Balkan Route" of illegal migration, which influences all the main areas of society, including the security of the state and that of its citizens.
One of the main issues in the last decade, at national and international level, is the human trafficking, linked to the illegal migration, which is constantly increasing.
Human trafficking is an offense which affects human rights, with profound economic and social interference, due to the mobility and perceivable advantages of the phenomenon.
