Eradicate slavery once and for all!
“Considering today’s world is increasingly instable, loaded with conflicts, climate change-triggered emergencies and an increasingly widening gap between haves and haves-not, it is vital to end factors that contribute result in horrendous trap of modern-day slavery. Special attention must be directed to children, as they suffer the most, especially linked to conflict and post-conflict situations and few options for legal channels of migration. The children often escape dire conditions at home with hopes and dreams. But eventually they end up as labour or sex slaves. They’ve been robbed of their childhood and dignity. The psychological wounds are tremendously deep,” said Geneviève Colas, Caritas Europa’s expert in trafficking in human beings.
For these and numerous other reasons, the Council of Europe Convention on Action against Trafficking in Human Beings should be ratified and implemented immediately.
