Human Trafficking in Thailand Case Study
Transcript of Human Trafficking in Thailand Case Study
Responses–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)?
Evaluation–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?
The efforts and policies are not successful. It is like a child being told not to do something. As soon as you put a law on it, they do it more, because it is rebellious and "thrilling." There are statistics that have shown decreases and increases in human trafficking, but ultimately, it needs to be at a complete halt. Since this world is corrupt, they will continue to do this and it will continue to get worse. That is why people need a savior. People need to find Jesus, because honestly, the way the world is, it keeps worsening. Only the corrupt in mind and soul would partake in human trafficking. Trafficking is just one issue. There should be more laws or restrictions that are serious to these things, but there should also be more people working towards a revival of God's people.
This affects human rights. It enforces someone to go through a painful or sexual act with someone. The person does it to the victim without their consent. This shuts down their right to a freedom of speech to say no and that it is their own body. A lot of victims form trafficking within Thailand are immigrants from the countries that neighbor Thailand. They are forced, pressured, or tricked into this type of modern day slavery. The UN Inter-Agency Project on Human Trafficking (UNIAP) says that Thai authorities return over 23,000 Cambodian trafficking victims to their home each year. Human trafficking was not just for sex from women, it was also for men trading labor. The men worked and remained at sea on boats for up years, with no income, and were forced to work almost all day and every day. They were threatened and beaten. It has affected millions because there is no control and prevention. People just do it because they want what they want. Women being used for sex, men being used for labor, and even children made beg for money has brought a whole new outlook on slavery. It affects human rights because people cannot use the rights that everyone was born with.
The United states is responding to the issue. The "U.S. government’s principal diplomatic tool to engage foreign governments on human trafficking is the annually published Trafficking in Persons Report (TIP)." It is good and helpful that this is going on 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. " The U.S. is fortunate enough to not deal with this issue a much as other places, so it is really trying to help those that are involved. Even though we do not have a lot of it, the act of trafficking effects everyone! The united states is not the only one that is trying to help. A lot of UN nations signed the The United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, including Thailand. The U.S. tries to achieve Spreading Democracy, World Peace, National Security and humanitary help, in the foreign policy. The Thai prime minister acknowledged to the publc that there is a huge need to improve the government’s weak involvement of stopping human trafficking. Nations are trying to come together to promote the peace of the world in this topical area.
