    Abstract

    The aim of this research is to provide a critical examination of the illegal trade and trafficking in human organs. By discussing issues on the supply and demand for organs around the world, reasons will be identified as to why this organised crime occurs, along with the types of people involved with facilitating the market and processes involved. In addition, the legal frameworks in place will be discussed and legal challenges highlighted.
    These aims will be addressed with reference to the following research objectives:

    • To critically examine the need for black market human organs and identify the organ suppliers and the recipients.

    • To identify the various modes of organ trafficking and the individual facilitators roles within the trafficking networks

    • To identify the international and domestic legal framework and provide analysis of the legal challenges posed to investigators.
