Informe 2009: El tráfico y la trata de seres humanos con fines de explotación sexual en España

Este informe del Observatorio Cívico Independiente abordará el tema de la trata, el tráfico y la prostitución de las personas. Éstos son términos interrelacionados y que a menudo se confunden, por tanto debemos entender que la finalidad de la trata es la explotación de la persona tras su traslado de un punto a otro mientras que la finalidad del tráfico es el traslado de personas ilegalmente a través de fronteras nacionales. Por su parte la finalidad de la prostitución es la obtención de dinero a cambio de relaciones sexuales. Como analizaremos a lo largo de este informe, estamos ante formas modernas de esclavitud y/o de tráfico de esclavos.

Slavery, Abolition & Evangelicals

25 March 2007 marks the bicentenary of the Abolition of the Slave Trade Act. Evangelicals played a significant role in the abolition of the slave trade, as well as in the abolition of slavery itself. Because of their religious beliefs and values they were amongst the leading philanthropists and pioneered numerous welfare provisions and social reforms in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. There is a line of spiritual continuity and practical piety, of evangelical witness and concern for social and spiritual transformation. The bicentenary is also a timely reminder of this rich legacy, as well as a renewed challenge for Christians today to actively “promote justice and compassion for the poor, vulnerable and oppressed” . In commemorating the bicentenary, this booklet aims to do three things briefly. Firstly, draw attention to some biblical perspectives on slavery and society; secondly, make a couple of observations about the nature of slavery and the contributions of some key abolitionists; and thirdly, offer some suggested activities for churches and groups to mark the bicentenary.

Human Trafficking: A Report on Modern Day Slavery in Canada

April 2009
This 30-page report reviews recent experience with human trafficking in association with major international events and recommends action that may be taken by the Canadian, British Columbia and Vancouver governments in preparation for the 2010 Olympic Games and beyond. Human trafficking, the capture and confinement of individuals for the purposes of sexual exploitation, abuse and enslavement, occurs today at an alarming rate (an estimated 12.3 million people are coerced into forced labour or sexual exploitation around the world). What many find shocking is that it occurs in Canada and that Canada is used as both a transfer location and a destination country for human traffickers. This report reviews and considers current steps being taking relative to the prevention of trafficking, the prosecuting of traffickers and the protection of victims and recommends further steps that the government of Canada can undertake to better reduce, and one day hopefully eliminate, trafficking in Canada and beyond.
