Hello, I am looking for someone to write an article on Why is Human Trafficking Commonly Practiced in the Middle East. It needs to be at least 1500 words. It is followed by the history of human trafficking segment, highlighting the historical practices and presence of slavery in different countries of the Eastern Hemisphere. Before the conclusion, reasons of human trafficking have been included.
Thesis Statement: Human Trafficking is commonly practiced in the Eastern Hemisphere due to the fact that the laws implemented by the governments are not respected nor enforced and it is silently accepted.
United Nations have clearly defined human trafficking. It has been defined as “the recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or use of force or other forms of coercion, of abduction, of fraud, of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability or of the giving or receiving of payments or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person, for the purpose of exploitation. Exploitation includes, at a minimum, the exploitation of the prostitution of others or other forms of sexual exploitation, forced labor or services, slavery or practices of similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs” (United Nations Human Settlement Programme 63).
Bonded labor is one of the worst manifestations of human trafficking. In such practices, services rendered to an employer are considerably higher than those mentioned in the written employment contract between the employer and the employee. Such heinous acts are common in the Middle East. For example, countries like Syria, Mauritania and Kuwait experience situations in which debt owned by father do not end with the death of the father of the family. children and the wife of deceased would be required to pay the remaining amount. .
