Descrizione del libro

ottobre 2011
General Editor of this title is Parosha Chandran LLB (Hons), LLM (Lond), Diplome in Human Rights (International Institute of Human Rights, Strasbourg), Barrister of Lincoln's Inn. It is presented with contributions from specialist practitioners from expert organisations including the AIRE Centre, Anti-Slavery International, ECPAT UK, the Helen Bamber Foundation, Kalayaan, The Metropolitan Police, and the Poppy Project. Human trafficking, along with arms dealing and the illegal drugs trade, is one of the three largest criminal industries in the world, with an estimated $32 billion in annual profits. According to the International Labour Organization, there are some 12.3 million people in forced labour, bonded labour and commercial sexual servitude at any given time, of whom at least 2.4 million - including nearly 1 million children - will have been trafficked. Human trafficking affects every country in the world and spans all sectors of the economy from brothels to sweatshops, and farms to private homes. The trade of children for illegal adoptions, forced begging and cannabis cultivation generates massive profits for traffickers across Europe. However, despite global recognition of this horrific phenomenon, trafficking is a highly effective growth industry, and there remains a need for a greater level of understanding about this prolific criminal trade. This unique collection of original essays seeks to meet that need by bringing together for the first time expert perspectives from a wide range of key participants in the struggle against human trafficking in the United Kingdom. Edited and collated by award-winning human rights barrister Parosha Chandran, this precedent-setting text assembles the views of specialist lawyers, local authorities, doctors, non-governmental organisations, police officers and prosecutors as it surveys the major themes of human trafficking, ranging from domestic servitude to sexual and labour exploitation, and also carefully examines the impact of trafficking upon its victims. Expert legal and voluntary sector contributors explore and explain the identification, support, protection and compensation of trafficking victims - both adult and child - and law enforcement officials offer an exclusive insight into the investigation and prosecution of traffickers. Dedicated chapters on trafficking in Scotland and Northern Ireland complete a UK-wide examination of the issue. "The Human Trafficking Handbook" is an essential anthology of opinion and analysis written by experienced, passionate professionals who play a vital role in today's fight against modern-day slavery. "The picture painted by the book illustrates the stark reality that, despite the important advances which have been made in the United Kingdom in recent years, much remains to be done to respond more effectively to the threat and consequences of human trafficking, both of which are still disturbingly real. This excellent Handbook will not only contribute to a better understanding of the challenges presented by human trafficking but it will become an indispensable resource for all concerned with combating this pernicious trade". (Sir Nicolas Bratza, European Court of Human Rights).

5.0 su 5 stelle Modern slavery expertly explained... 26 maggio 2014
Formato:Copertina flessibile
IN THE HUMAN RIGHTS CONTEXT

An appreciation by Phillip Taylor MBE and Elizabeth Taylor of Richmond Green Chambers

Although it may sound a rather crude statement, this handbook is about all aspects of modern slavery, known also as trafficking, and its relatively unchecked re-emergence into our modern society.

There are 27 contributors to the diversity of topics covered in the chapters including contributions from 7 organisations. It makes this book, in the words of Nicholas Bratza, not a merely a ‘modestly titled’ handbook but even more a detailed manual formulated by the distinguished field of experts who have contributed to the work.

Bratza says that whilst there’s a mine of information, and clear and practical guidance, the handbook examines all aspects of human trafficking in its separate chapters of applicability to a wide readership.

The experts used here are from many different fields including doctors, children’s services, domestic and international trafficking specialists, legal practitioners, police and prosecutors and members of organisations dedicated to the support of victims of trafficking.

What is striking when one reads through the work are the valuable conclusions at the end of the chapters and the substantial detail contained in the footnotes. A recurring theme throughout is rightly that of the victim. As Bratza remarks, the areas range from the identification of victims and potential victims of trafficking and their treatment and support, to issues including the special problems relating to child victims.

The handbook covers worldwide concerns, reviewing the international rights and duties affecting the protection of victims.

5.0 su 5 stelle Excellent resource to aid in combating human trafficking 10 dicembre 2013
Di Lawgirl - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile|Acquisto verificato
This collection of scholarly articles and practical frameworks is absolutely essential for the legal advocate, legislator or human rights activist seeking to understand the depth and complexities of human trafficking in all its forms in the United Kingdom. The Handbook is also a tremendous resource for attorneys and advocates in any common law country, especially the United States, as many of the causes of action for civil remedies are similar and can be sought in US jurisdictions as well. Ms. Chandran's work is a great contribution to the field of human rights and an excellent aid to those seeking to end human trafficking.

A recurring theme throughout is rightly that of the victim. As Bratza remarks, the areas range from the identification of victims and potential victims of trafficking and their treatment and support, to issues including the special problems relating to child victims.

The handbook covers worldwide concerns, reviewing the international rights and duties affecting the protection of victims. It also examines the problematic issue of remedial measures for victims, including the right to compensation.

The legislative and operational measures here in UK relating to the non-criminalization of victims and the investigation and prosecution of human traffickers are well covered in our view. So the picture painted illustrates a stark reality that, in spite of the advances made here recently, much remains to be done to respond more effectively to the threat and consequences of human trafficking.

The conclusion on modern slavery is that of a common theme and a continuing concern which the contributors raise with the need to ensure that respect for the human rights of all victims of trafficking will have to underpin all anti-trafficking measures.

It's an excellent handbook combining a wealth of learning and experience in a single volume which not only contributes to a better understanding of the challenges presented by human trafficking.

As the writers say, "it will become an indispensable resource for all concerned with combating this pernicious trade"... and, very unfortunately, most important for today's society when our forefathers had probably thought this matter had gone away, which it hasn't.
