La trata y el tráfico de personas son delitos que se han incrementado en forma alarmante en los últimos años, debido a las difíciles condiciones de vida en los países menos desarrollados, al endurecimiento de las políticas migratorias en los países industrializados y al hecho de que por mucho tiempo estos fenómenos no fueron considerados como un problema estructural sino como una serie de episodios aislados.

La respuesta mundial frente al crecimiento de esta forma de criminalidad fue la Convención contra la delincuencia organizada transnacional firmada en Palermo en el 2000 y los dos protocolos del mismo año: Protocolo contra el tráfico ilícito de migrantes por tierra, mar y aire y Protocolo para prevenir, reprimir y sancionar la trata de personas, especialmente mujeres y niños.
Los términos "trata de seres humanos" y "tráfico de migrantes" han sido usados como sinónimos pero se refieren a conceptos diferentes. El objetivo de la trata es la explotación de la persona, en cambio el fin del tráfico es la entrada ilegal de migrantes. En el caso de la trata no es indispensable que las víctimas crucen las fronteras para que se configure el hecho delictivo, mientras que éste es un elemento necesario para la comisión del tráfico.

"Commitment is what transforms a promise into reality. It is the words that speak boldly of your intentions and the actions which speak louder than words. It is making the time when there is none. It is coming through time after time, year after year. Commitment is the stuff character is made of, the power to change the face of things. It is the triumph of integrity over skepticism".

~Abraham Lincoln

 
 

 

 

 

HOST AN EVENT ON HUMAN TRAFFICKING

Helping victims of human trafficking is as simple as talking to a friend. Host an event and invite the community to discuss the exploitation of human beings. At this campaign, we are eager to spread the word and we'd like to talk at any community event about human trafficking and victim identification.

GET INVOLVED!

 

These are some of the things you can do to help fight human trafficking:

Be informed! Educate yourself about human trafficking by reading about it. Follow events in the news. Keep your eyes open - human trafficking is happening all around us.

Raise awareness! Talk to friends, family and colleagues. You could even start talking to your local politicians and authorities.

Get involved! Participate in an anti-trafficking movement in your area and get involved in its activities and campaigns (e.g. hold events, distribute posters, leaflets etc.) in your neighborhood and in schools.

Encourage businesses! Be a responsible consumer! Inform yourself on the labour policies of companies to ensure their products are free from slave labour and other forms of exploitation. If possible, buy fair trade products.

Seek support! If you suspect that someone has been trafficked report it to the institutions or assistance facilities dealing with human trafficking in your area.

"It ought to concern every person, because it is a debasement of our common humanity. It ought to concern every community, because it tears at our social fabric. It ought to concern every business, because it distorts markets. It ought to concern every nation, because it endangers public health and fuels violence and organized crime. I’m talking about the injustice, the outrage, of human trafficking, which must be called by its true name -- modern slavery."

– President Barack OBAMA
