Abstract
Organ trafficking is an illegal means of meeting the shortage of transplant organs on a global market. Reasons that this activity flourishes include medical needs, poverty and criminality. This article is focused on those who sell their organs. The ambition is to see how their actions are the result of a socio-cultural context as well as how ideas and actions impact the trafficking phenomenon. The discussion revolves around the multifaceted role of the organ sellers – victims as well as actors searching for economic survival strategies
