The use of videos to inform about human trafficking: communicational criteria to contribute to its prevention and denunciation
This article presents the results of a research that identified online videos that address the human trafficking issue, its forms and its characteristics with the purpose of using them in informative processes that allow increasing the knowledge on the phenomenon and promoting its prevention among potential victims. As a result, the audiovisual materials are classified and described. It was found that human trafficking related to the sexual exploitation is the most addressed form, which is why it is necessary to broaden the research on and production of materials that inform about the other forms. Finally, criteria are provided to address the human trafficking issue in communicational processes, especially with the purpose of breaking rooted stereotypes about this issue and avoiding informative errors that could lead to revictimization.
