Transcript of Human Trafficking in Thailand Case Study

Human Trafficking in Thailand Case Study Made By: Skii Meyers Origins: How did the human rights issue come about? Who does it affect and how? How does it affect human rights? How is the United States government responding to the issue? How are other governments both inside and outside the situation responding to the problem? How do these responses relate to the foreign policy spectrum of approaches you studied in the lesson (isolationism, diplomacy, interventionism, imperialism)? Responses Are the efforts and policies enacted by governments and international organizations successful? What would you recommend be done to better address the human rights issue? Evaluation: This is affecting the human rights because it is enforcing a pain or sexual act on someone with out there consent. You are silencing their right to a freedom of speech. The majority of the trafficking victims identified within Thailand are immigrants from Thailand’s neighboring countries who are forced, pressured, or deceived into modern slavery. The UN Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP) estimates that Thai authorities send home over 23,000 Cambodian trafficking victims a year. This issue is affecting many people. It is affecting the the neighboring areas to Thailand and there was even a report about it, "The report notes that individuals from neighboring countries of Cambodia and Burma are recruited–some forcefully or through fraud–for work in the Thai fishing industry." While this was affecting the people involved, this human trafficking was not just for women trading sex it was for men trading labor as well. These men worked on boats that remained at sea for up to several years, did not receive pay, were forced to work 18 to 20 hours per day for seven days a week, and were threatened and physically beaten. This had affected people of all ages and there was no stopping to it. It has affected so many people because there is no control and prevention. These people felt like they were scum; women being used for sex, men being used for labor, and even children being made to sell flowers or beg for money so they can live. This is affecting our human rights by not allowing the people to express who they really are. John Lock gave us the impression that everyone was born with certain freedom and rights."No one shall be held in slavery or servitude; slavery and the slave trade shall be prohibited in all their forms. "
- Article 4, Universal Declaration of Human Rights
Even though this was based off an American perception it applies anywhere. Everyone has the a right to Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. This Trafficking is hurting human rights by making people feel as if they were a dog, or even a piece of poop. These experiences as to which they had to live in was quite traumatizing "United Nations Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking study found 29 of 49 (58 percent) surveyed migrant fishermen trafficked aboard Thai fishing boats had witnessed a fellow fishermen killed by boat captains when they were too weak or sick to work" This is giving people the poor perception that everyone is evil and is only out for one thing, greed. The United states is responding to the issue by the "U.S. government’s principal diplomatic tool to engage foreign governments on human trafficking is the annually published Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP)" this is a great way of helping because "It is the world’s most comprehensive resource on governmental anti-human trafficking efforts and reflects the U.S. Government’s commitment to global leadership on this key human rights and law enforcement issue. " I feel as if The U.S. is really trying to help those that are involved in any act of human trafficking. The reason that we are involved is because the act of trafficking effects everyone whether there are the country of origin or even the destination. The united states is not the only one that is trying to do something. Most UN member nations have signed the The United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, including Thailand. The goals that the U.S. try to achieve when they are in a foreign policy is Spreading Democracy, World Peace, National Security and humanitary help. Other countries are contributing to the act of trafficking by the Thai prime minister has chaired meetings with labor and civic organizations to coordinate anti-trafficking efforts. This also led to the development of the Thai government’s second six-year National Policy Strategy on human trafficking for 2011-2016. In July 2010. The prime minister publicly acknowledged the need to improve the government’s weak interagency coordination in addressing human trafficking. The Thai government reported increases in trafficking prosecutions and convictions, but as of May 2011 there was insufficient data available to determine whether each of these could be categorized as human trafficking convictions. How does this go along with what I learned on foreign policy spectrum? This goes along with the spectrum by saying that it cause a small side of world peace. The reason that I say that is because the nations have came together to stop an illegal action(diplomacy) which is interventionism. They have created multiple programs to take down the Trafficking. It goes with imperialism by being compared as not taking over counties but taking over societies. No the reason that I say this is because there is still trafficking going on in all corners of the world. They can say that stats are going down but there is always that one that they won't find. Have secret agents go in and work their tales off as to how they would find out what is going on? and where to adress the problem.
