DAY AGAINST HUMAN TRAFFICKING: CARITAS, GOVERNMENTS MUST PROTECT VICTIMS (2)

"In the same time – added Karolina Babicka, Caritas Europa’s Policy and Advocacy Officer in charge of Migration -, the Palermo Protocol says we need to protect the victims of trafficking and secure their human rights". Member States "need to make sure that victims of human trafficking are not criminalised but protected and that demand is also tackled as one of the root causes of trafficking". In order to "ramp up" the efforts of the Christian community in combating human trafficking, 37 organisations have joined their efforts and created the Christian Organisations Against Trafficking Network (COATNET), based on shared Christian values and principles such as the inviolability of human dignity, solidarity with the poor and non-violence. The Network works globally, across borders, to raise public awareness about trafficking in human beings; fight the root causes of vulnerability, such as poverty and lack of job alternatives; advocate for migration and economic policies and for better anti-trafficking laws; cooperate with authorities, churches and civil society actors to counter the phenomenon; and help trafficking survivors start a new life.
