For paper number three I plan on writing about human trafficking. While doing some research I came across this government document labeled “The .” It is really nothing interesting at all so don’t even both reading further, but if you do then I will explain more about it. Report
In a nutshell, human trafficking is pretty much “modern-day slavery.” Bonded labor, sexual slavery, and involuntary servitude are just three of a number of forces that drive this business. It is an extremely popular billion-dollar business that is expanding faster that regulation can handle. It seems as if these traffickers are always one step ahead of the government because when one business gets shut down, there are millions elsewhere.
So basically, the Trafficking in Persons Report is a report about the government’s efforts to fight cases or incidents of people being trafficked. This report raises a global awareness to foreign governments and encourages all countries to take effective actions to counter this sick business. Specifically, the 2011 report calls for “a Decade of Delivery,” which builds off the progress from the past 10 years and looks to seek new ways for victim protection. Some of these ways include: proactive victim identification, comprehensive services for these victims, and laws to protect domestic and agricultural workers.
First, for the proactive victim identification, numerous governments are having its law enforcement officials partake in various training programs to help them identify and catch trafficked victims. This will ultimately make them aware of possible incidents that could potentially occur during the regular duties, ultimately by chance.
Next, medical care, housing care, counseling, and job training and placement etc. are a number of comprehensive services that various government and non-governmental organizations are offering depending on the needs of the trafficked victims.
Last, pending laws are being implemented to protect domestic and agricultural workers from exploitation and trafficking. Believe it or not, the two groups of workers are the most vulnerable and need the most protection. The reasons are because both these groups of workers are basically held behind closed doors and are invisible within the communities in which they work. Any labor protections laws to prevent them from being exploited do not cover them. Therefore, it is vital for the government to implement laws to help minimize these crimes against the humanity of these innocent individuals.
