    http://www.revistas.uma.es/index.php/trans/article/view/2095Abstract by authors: Interpreting and language mediation for female victims of human trafficking for sexual purposes is a profoundly complex area with major human and professional ethical implications. Detention centres for undocumented migrants in Italy have been given much attention in the media recently in the wake of recent geopolitical events leading to a large influx of migrants and refugees. These centres have been particularly challenging for interpreters and language mediators for numerous reasons: linguistic/pragmatic, cultural, institutional, emotional and psychological, etc. This paper is based on data collected during a 6-month internship period at the CIE detention centre in Bologna and describes how working relationships are slowly and laboriously created and negotiated between institution, victim and interpreter/mediator. The paper describes the linguistic and pragmatic obstacles that emerge, especially in the use of Nigerian English, along with Arabic the most frequently used languages.

    Abstract:Human trafficking has been the subject of growing attention from both scholars and policymakers. The internationally accepted definition of human trafficking used by governments and international organizations identifies three purposes of trading in persons: sexual exploitation, labor exploitation, and the removal of organs. I argue that conflating sex, labor, and organ trafficking in policy initiatives and in the scholarly literature overlooks major differences between these practices—differences that greatly affect governments’ willingness and ability to curb them. This article identifies three such differences: the social status and political influence of the perpetrators, the precision of norms and their resonance with audiences, and the costs of enforcement. Through these distinctions, I explain why Israel has been vigorous in combating sex trafficking, yet hesitant to tackle labor and organ trafficking. The Israeli experience highlights the different challenges posed by sex, labor, and organ trafficking and offers important lessons for the study of these phenomena.

    Deze masterproef handelt omtrent ‘loverboys in België’. Zowel in de wetenschap als in de bredere samenleving is de aandacht rond dit fenomeen recentelijk toegenomen. Kranten publiceren steeds meer omtrent dit thema. Ook het wetenschappelijk onderzoek stijgt. Maar aangezien de toegenomen aandacht recent is, is het onderzoek hieromtrent nog beperkt. De doelstelling van dit onderzoek is dan ook om een beter inzicht te verkrijgen in dit fenomeen. Om dit te bereiken worden loverboys vergeleken met het klassieke pooierschap. Een plausibele hypothese is namelijk dat het fenomeen een sociaal construct is. Dit wil zeggen dat ‘loverboys’ mogelijks een term is die ontstaan is uit de ervaring dat het om een nieuw fenomeen gaat, terwijl dit in werkelijkheid misschien niet zo is. Als dit het geval is dan zouden loverboys eigenlijk ‘gewoon’ pooiers zijn. De centrale vraag van dit onderzoek is dan ook wat de overeenkomsten en wat de verschillen van loverboys met pooiers zijn. Een antwoord op deze vraag is relevant voor zowel wetgeving en beleid als voor praktijk.

    There are limits to what governments and law enforcement can do alone. But there is no limit to what governments, law enforcement, civil society and committed private sector partners can do together.Technology is a force for good. Yet, there is a dark side. Technology also facilitates the exploitation of children and creates enforcement gaps. We have to change that. We have to catch up. We have to innovate. Technology is a central part of the challenge, but I believe that within technology resides the solution.

    It is necessary for States to have adequate legal and institutional frameworks to protect children from sexual exploitation in travel and tourism. Companies that fail to protect children or even violate children´s rights should be held liable. With international law being directed primarily at States, the question of liability for corporate violations has proved difficult. Yet, it is central when considering the role of a child victimised by sexual crimes in tourism.The overall objective of this study is to analyse the existing legal and ‘soft law’ instruments that address corporate liability in the context of sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism (SECTT). The study also explores the possibility of holding companies liable to international and domestic law and, accordingly, identify gaps and future challenges.

    A lack of data exists pertaining to the unique challenges and barriers that child victims of sexual exploitation, including sexual exploitation in travel and tourism, face when accessing justice. To address this knowledge gap, ECPAT International conducted a study (A2J Study) to explore why "child-friendly justice" is so elusive for sexually exploited children and to identify the specific barriers that continue to prevent these children from accessing justice.

    This paper provides a snapshot of child sex tourism in a Samoan tourist setting, based on research conducted in 2009 which focussed on the scope, risk factors and underlying causes. The research findings are largely based on interviews with key stakeholders: government and intergovernmental agencies, civil society, urban and rural focus groups and taxi drivers. It includes recommendations for improvements in policy, advocacy and research.
