With the disclosure of some typical cases, the crime of buying women has aroused the discussion in criminal law circles. Many scholars have examined situation of the legislation related crimes, and the call for the same crime of buying and selling women into the scope of legislation as well. In recent years, transnational and inter-regional crimes of human trafficking have been frequent, therefore, it is beneficial to promote international cooperation and provide reference for further legislation to combat the domestic buyer's market. In view of the differences in cultural customs and realities, it is obvious that the governance mechanisms about the crime of trafficking and buying women and children in different countries cannot be generalized. However, the successful experiences and lessons from them can be learned from each other with full respect for their national conditions and realities. By comparing Chinese and foreign criminal laws on the purchase of trafficked women, this paper provides a comparative analysis of the criminal legislative system of purchase in human trafficking crimes, discusses the current situation and shortcomings of China's purchase legislation, and at the same time proposes legislative and judicial recommendations to improve the purchase of trafficked women.
