Facts

Azerbaijan is a destination country for those trafficked for sex and labour, victims’ nationalities include Turkish, Uzbekistani, Turkmenistani and Ukrainian. Azeri women and children are trafficked for sexual purposes within the country’s borders as well as in Turkey, Russia and the United Arab Emirates.

In 2011, Azerbaijan changed the legal age of marriage for girls from 17 to 18 years old, however, when authorised by a local executive power this age can be reduced by one year. In 2014, 11% of women aged 20-24 had been married by the age of 18 and 2% by the age of 15.

Azeri law prohibits the exploitation of children in prostitution. A Baku NGO has reported that street children still remain particularly vulnerable to this type of exploitation.
