Are 30,000 children "trafficked" into the sex trade every year in South Africa? Are 30,000 children "currently" being prostituted in South Africa? As Africa Check discovered, the estimates are not supported by available research.

I am wondering that if the requirements to study trafficking are often too rigid. One higher profile victim recently said ( I am paraphrasing), that if treat the accounts by victims as anecdotal and not as real evidence and research, how are we ever going to understand. Without their accounts there would be no "human trafficking" to even discuss. I know about the definition including that the victim must cross borders. That would make the victim I am speaking not actually trafficked. But, she was. In every real sense. The movie Eden, renamed , The Abduction of Eden on Netflix was based on her experience. I know we are talking about South Africa not America. It just is a question I have in my mind.
