    The phenomenon of the trafficking of women, especially of young girls and women into exploitative sexual and commercial labor, has recently begun to attract local, national and international attention from world leaders, academics, the mass media, advocacy groups, the clergy and humanity in general. This is against the back drop of the fact that the trafficking of women has a number of far-reaching socio-economic, health and political consequences. Several factors, among them poverty, unemployment, ignorance and family size have been implicated as being reasons why women fall easy preys to the antics of traffickers. From available statistics, we can say that about 500,000 women are brought into the United States of America and Europe yearly for sexual and domestic servitude. Of the over 70,000 African victims of women trafficking, Nigerian women account for 70 percent of those trafficked to Italy alone. Fighting the menace requires a coordinated and concerted push from all stakeholders. This paper presents the causes and consequences of the trafficking of women from Nigeria to America and Europe. Empirical evidence indicates that the activities of traffickers, corrupt embassy officials, the country’s porous borders, poverty, refusal of victims to expose traffickers, delay in prosecuting apprehended culprits and biting youth unemployment have “conspired” to undermine the battle against the illicit trade. The paper makes far-reaching recommendations about how to mitigate the identified obstacles.

    'The Standing Senate Committee on Human Rights (the committee) began its study in 2009 of ―the issue of the sexual exploitation of children in Canada, with a particular emphasis on understanding the scope and prevalence of the problem of the sexual exploitation of children across the country and in particularly affected communities.''The Internet has not only facilitated the purchase and sale of sex and pornography, it has created a new context for human sexual interaction. The Internet has become a place for children to explore their developing sexuality. Evidence on what children can be exposed to over the Internet underscored for the committee the importance of proper guidance for children, whether from parents or educators.'

    The commercial sexual exploitation of children is one of the worst, yet unaddressed, forms of child abuse in the United States. It happens in every city and small town; it traps children of all backgrounds in violence and trauma. Despite their abuse, victims are frequently arrested, detained and even prosecuted as juvenile offenders. In this short documentary, we meet Katrina whose childhood as a good student in a middle class home abruptly ends when she is manipulated and sold for sex by a trafficker. Her compelling and emotional story takes us from Atlanta to New York City to Atlanta again, from desperation to recovery and success. Katrina's inspiring story reminds us that with understanding, opportunity and support victims can become survivors.This documentary brings together a diverse set of experts from juvenile justice, law enforcement, advocates, and services providers to speak about the traumatic effects of commercial sexual exploitation of children. They also share examples of how legislative reform measures and new approaches are helping shift our response from punitive to restorative. Katrina and experts in the field provide a glimpse of a cycle of violence and a broken system. However, the story does not end there. Katrina challenges us to see survivors in terms of their humanity, value and potential -- not their past. Once we see exploited children in these terms, we realize our response to their trauma is in critical need of reform.

    Proefschrift van Maybritt Jill Alpes waarin ze aandacht schenkt aan de keuzes en worstelingen van migranten in spe als zij nog in hun land van vertrek verblijven. De nadruk ligt op misbruik en uitbuiting in het land van aankomst en overschaduwt vaak de keuzes, motieven en problemen van migranten in spe voorafgaand aan hun vertrek.

    Insecure States, Disempowerment and Human TraffickingMensenhandel is een wereldwijde misdaad. In Nederland komen veel slachtoffers uit Nigeria en Bulgarije. Deze landen kunnen beschouwd worden als veranderlijke, onstabiele en onveilige staten. Harma van der Laan probeert in 2011 in dit onderzoeksproject antwoord te geven op de vraag hoe deze eigenschappen van landen bijdragen aan een hogere waarschijnlijkheid dat mensenhandel voorkomt.
