Trafficking of children: a massive violation of human rights, a problem for the future of Europe [en] | fr
16 November 2004

Trafficking of children represents today one of the most massive and violent forms of violation of human rights, and of child rights in particular.



 

This phenomenon is strictly linked to the raising condition of poverty in the developing countries and in some transition countries too. Trafficking represents also a concrete form of exploitation linked to the economic globalisation which treats all human beings as commodities. The added value of a trafficked child is in fact very high. Europe is the most important recipient of this trafficking. The World Social movement needs to be aware of this to promote public opinion awareness and to put forward new forms of addressing the phenomena through a strengthening of the respect of human rights and development cooperation in the third countries.

Alternative proposals

The International Campaign against Child trafficking is willing to arise public awareness on the phenomena, lobbying the political authorities to provide more advanced legislation for fighting it, providing more resource in order to help the victims and above all to increase the development cooperation with the developing countries to combat poverty and support human rights.

Implementation

European, national and international legislation against child trafficking. To consider child trafficking as a crime against humanity at the level of the International Criminal Court. Adequate resources for development cooperation, campaigns to raise public and political awareness in Europe.
