Abstract
International criminal law is currently subdivided into international criminal law stricto sensu — the so-called core crimes—genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes of international concern—the so-called treaty crimes—human trafficking, terrorism, drug trafficking etc.*

This research draft suggests that special category of international crimes such as human trafficking can be appropriately relabeled from transnational criminal law into the threshold of either international criminal law as crime against humanity or into international human rights law as violation of human rights with the purpose to find right match for the trafficking in human beings

International criminal law is currently subdivided into international criminal law stricto sensu — the so-called core crimes—genocide, war crimes, crimes against humanity and crimes of international concern—the so-called treaty crimes—human trafficking, terrorism, drug trafficking etc.*

This research draft suggests that special category of international crimes such as human trafficking can be appropriately relabeled from transnational criminal law into the threshold of either international criminal law as crime against humanity or into international human rights law as violation of human rights with the purpose to find right match for the trafficking in human beings

For this purpose the thesis work will outline human trafficking from two perspectives, first as crime against humanity and second as violation of human rights. Finally, the essay argues that the term human trafficking from prospective of crime against humanity or violation of human rights as such is functional because it points to severe disastrous impact on human beings. Within the threshold of the core crimes in international criminal law the right definition of trafficking in human beings is truly justified. How?
The current definition of Trafficking in Human Beings as International Transnational Crime does not provide the real and hazardous meaning of human trafficking. The appropriate definition is highly urgent because of the necessity to focus attention on the following issues such as process of criminalization of trafficking in human beings and individual or state responsibility for trafficking, legal protection of victims of trafficking in human beings as relatively neglected system.

The choice of this issue is very essential from my scholar point of view and became the subject of my interest because of the continuing growth and timeless tendency of trafficking in human beings in the world nowadays.

I will show through my legal research that necessity of right definition for this international transnational crime will clarify the real meaning of human trafficking in practice and will assist States to prevent, suppress and criminalize trafficking in human beings.

To make my legal research the standpoint of interest for reader I will enshrine in this thesis draft besides the main research question the essential aspects of human trafficking in order to show the severity of this crime and necessity to define this international transnational crime either as crime against humanity or violation of human rights.
