Trafficking In Persons Victims’ Voices Must Lead The Way Towards Action

On July 30, the U.N. marks the World Day against Trafficking in Persons. The annual day was established by U.N. General Assembly resolution to address the “need for raising awareness of the situation of victims of human trafficking and for the promotion and protection of their rights.” This year’s theme, “Victims’ Voices Lead the Way” aims to put victims of human trafficking at the centre of the campaign and highlights the importance of listening to, and learning from survivors of human trafficking. The campaign is about them, and for them, as long as it is with them. As the U.N. explains “many victims of human trafficking have experienced ignorance or misunderstanding in their attempts to get help. They have had traumatic post-rescue experiences during identification interviews and legal proceedings. Some have faced revictimization and punishment for crimes they were forced to commit by their traffickers. Others have been subjected to stigmatization or received inadequate support.” Learning from the experiences of victims of human trafficking can help to provide better assistance to them. And learning we must as the situation is not getting better.
