04.06 Foreign Policy: Human Trafficking in Thailand
Transcript of 04.06 Foreign Policy: Human Trafficking in Thailand
Origin: How did the human rights issue come about? How does it effect human rights?
Human trafficking affects human rights because it silences their right to freedom of speech. These people are forced into a modern form of slavery, Women are used as sex slaves, men are forced into labor work, and even children are made to beg for money in order to live. It effects their human rights because it takes away their freedom of expression.
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)?
In the article that I read, human combat has been on the issue. The UN General Assembly took the problem into their own hands and began to take over. Most of the states agreed to sign and prevent them crimes internationally. Many nations are working with one another to try to prevent human trafficking and to make sure that it is dealt with in the correct way.
1. Select a recent or ongoing human rights issue. You may research one of the example issues from this Human Rights Issues List or choose one the following case studies provided for you:
Repression of Political Dissent in Cuba Case Study
Human Trafficking in Thailand Case Study
2. Learn about your issue. Carefully read the case study provided in step one, or research the alternative human rights issue you chose. News outlets and the following websites can help you learn about your issue:
Human Rights Watch
US Department of State
Be sure to find out how the United States and other countries are attempting to address the issue.
3. Create a policy update for the United Nations including at least three well-written paragraphs that address the following:
Origins–How did the human rights issue come about? Who does it affect and how? How does it affect human rights?
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?
4. You may submit your policy update as a text document or in a creative format if you prefer. There are many 21st-century tools available for creating and submitting your work in the online environment. For more information on tools your school uses, you may contact your instructor or visit the Web 2.0 tools area.
Evaluation: Are the efforts and policies enacted by governments and international organizations successful? What would you recommend to be done to better address the human rights issue?
The efforts and policies enacted by the governments and international organizations are not yet successful. The governments and organizations do the best that they can to try and stop human trafficking. They are trying to do their best to ensure that it stops happening. Human trafficking has been around for hundreds of years in different forms. I don't think there is much anyone can do to stop it. As long as there are people, this will go on.
