ISIS RECRUITMENT TACTICS AND HUMAN TRAFFICKING2ISIS Recruitment Tactics and Human TraffickingThis paper discusses various strategies that Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) uses to lure and recruit foreign citizens into their terror group. Trafficking of young foreign women has served several purposes for terror group. Women are being used as sex slaves and also as market supply which can be exchanged for money and weapons. Women also are being used to lure young foreign fighters into joining the terror group. The paper also discusses how ISIS uses social media and technology to lure and attract foreign citizens (Dilegge & Bunker, 2015). Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) is a terror group that occupies a large territory in both Syria and Iraq (Binetti, 2015). The group is made of a Sunni radical group and they enlist majority of their fighters from foreign countries. ISIS is a threat to global security and their population keeps on increasing as a result of radicalization. The group has engaged in human trafficking in recent years. They are aided by the used of new technologies and social media platforms to recruit more fighters into the group (Dilegge & Bunker, 2015).Human trafficking has been one of the key tools employed by terrorist groups across the world for the purpose of funding their operation and also serving their own interests. The processof human trafficking enables terror groups to attract and recruit foreign fighters and also reward the effort of successful and loyal combatants. It is also a means of generating revenue to finance terror groups’ activities. Trafficking of sex slaves is a psychological warfare against the enemies, intimidating the population through the act of sexual harassment such as rape and torture is a tactical approach to crush resistance and forcibly displace a population.
