There is widespread consensus that domestic violence and human trafficking not only result in fundamental violations of individual human rights, but also contribute to security risks on human and global levels. In fact, both violence against women and human trafficking are considered top priority areas for intervention and reforms to address human security. Domestic violence and human trafficking are cause and consequence of insecurity suffered most often by women and children. Domestic violence attacks at home, in the place that ideally should be a safe haven, while human trafficking infects the world at large, feeding crime and corruption, taking advantage of human and territorial vulnerability, and undermining efforts to achieve peace and democracy.

This is especially so in the Republic of Moldova , where, some 17 years after it declared independence and survived an armed conflict, a political conflict remains with the breakaway region of Transnistria, levels of poverty surpass all other countries in Europe , and respect for human rights and rule of law remain issues of widespread concern. Poverty, inadequate public services, high levels of unemployment, discrimination against women, and lack of parental care are additional factors making Moldova vulnerable to human trafficking and domestic violence.
