ABSTRACT

Global Issues: Responses to Human Trafficking   [open pdf - 443KB]

"Around the world, diverse organizations have joined governments in the campaign to eradicate human trafficking, working together to thwart criminal organizations that seek profit from enslavement. Whether in the courts, in the media, or in targeted local campaigns, law enforcement officers and human rights activists are finding ways to rescue victims from indentured servitude, forced prostitution, and child labor. At the same time, organizations and governments are conducting broad educational campaigns to prevent other innocents from falling prey to this 21st century form of slavery. In this publication we highlight what these activists are doing to promote human potential and protect human dignity against the horrifying practice of human trafficking."
