Resilience of Young Women as Human Trafficking Victims

Yunita Sari and Khairunnisa
Abstract—This study aims to describe resilience of young women who were human trafficking victims. The used method is descriptive analysis. This study employs three adolescents, who were human trafficking victims, as the subjects of this study, who used to work as prostitutes in Garut, West Java, Indonesia. The data were collected through resilience questionnaires and semi-structured interviews composed by the researcher based on Grothberg’s theory (1999). The result shows that one victim has high resilience while the two others tend to have low resilience. Parenting, support from significant persons, and social competences are the ultimate factors for the victim to have high inference.

Index Terms—Resilience, human trafficking, young women.
