4.06 Foreign Policy Assessment:
Transcript of 4.06 Foreign Policy Assessment:
Well where did human trafficking really come from? It came once people noticed it was possible to actually sell human beings to other states and countries. This is an illegal action due to the fact that these innocent people are being treated like merchandise. They sell these people illegally in order for them to be used for sexual exploitation and forced labor. This trafficking of humans affects peoples rights because they are being sold as merchandise and are getting deprived from their freedom and rights. The U.S.A. grants people with their own rights and liberty in which they live upon and this kind of act towards a person is infringing completely the principles that the government and country grants citizens. These peoples being trafficked also affects their rights because they are forced and mistreated to do this against their will. In this particular case this trafficking of human is affecting people from Thailand because they are being trafficked to be forced into hard labor and for sexual slaves and exploitations. This kind of trade goes back to how this human trafficking occurred during the segregation moments in history here in the United States.
The United States is definitely responding to this in the correct manner that it should. In 2000 Congress in the U.S. passed a landmark legislation which is entitled the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. This allows for the U.S. to respond into legal matters with any situations of human trafficking. The U.S. isn't the only country with an act that opposes human trafficking but so does the United Nations. The general assembly of the UN adopted The United Nation Convention against Transnational Organized Crimes. Most of the countries in where human trafficking is a growing epidemic have actually signed the petition. All these nations are working extremely hard in order to cease the epidemic of human trafficking around the world. It has turned into a world goal to end the trafficking of human once and for all. The way in which nations are hand to hand working on this problem and negotiations shows the diplomacy chemistry between these nations.
The policies and efforts implemented in this problem of human trafficking is being successful as it should be. The nations have done a lot from their parts in adding services that aid these victims and have created all these acts and laws to stop the continuation of human trafficking. In such a short period of time the change has been drastic and many of these victims have been saved. I believe that if these nations continue to aid and work hard to end this epidemic human trafficking can begin to diminish over time. It won't be easy or a fast process but staying united will create an unbreakable nation in order to bring this to an end. Many people believe it is impossible and I'm not saying it will end 100% but if we ended slavery and segregation who says we can't end human trafficking? They must work together and have each others shoulders to lean on to stop this horrifying act that is occurring.
