In Depth Study in Mapping of the Current Situation on Migration and Human Trafficking in Asia
Human trafficking is ‘Global Threat’ to fundamental Liberty and Human Rights. It is one of the oldest, immoral, sinful, and serious crimes and human rights violations. It is a violation of the right to liberty, freedom, and security of a person as well as it is crime against the humanity, society and it is also against the whole human civilization. Migration and human trafficking are not new in the course of human history. One reality is that the situation around these issues is generating increasing attention and scrutiny in recent decades. As this issue matters to God’s gift of human dignity and life, more attention needs to be paid by faith-based organizations and religious institutions to combat inhuman modern slavery.
Human trafficking remains the most profitable illegal tread. Globally, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked across the international border and trafficked within-country every year. The majority of trafficking victims are women and girls, who are especially vulnerable due to limited economic opportunities, illiteracy or low education, and low socio-economic. Women and girls are also more vulnerable to trafficking if they are involved in marginalized livelihoods, deserted by their husbands or families, victims of abuse and violence, and those from disadvantaged communities and extremely poor families.
