This study is based on the bibliometric analysis of research publications that focus on highlighting the interlinkages between natural disasters and human trafficking as its aftermath. The main objectives of the study are to determine the frequency of such publications and also to establish that the problem of trafficking as a result of natural disasters has not received enough attention from the researchers. The data was collected from the Scopus database using VOSviewer software. Literature written from 2000 to October 2020 were perused. The study consisted of a total of 66 documents which are classified into articles, letters, editorials conference papers, and reviews. Data collected is analyzed and presented using tables, charts, and graphs. The study revealed that the interlinkage between disaster and human trafficking continues to be an under-researched area and which has led to complete divorce between disaster management and anti-trafficking practices. It is also recommended that disaster-prone economies should fund and encourage such research.
