The human trafficking may be considered a form of slavery widespread in contemporary societies. After facing major socio-criminological theoretical approaches applied to people trafficking within the framework of migratory processes, the paper analyzes the specific features taken from the phenomenon in the Adriatic-Ionian countries. Finally, some contrasting strategies are outlined, highlighting emerging risks linked to these forms of criminality.
