Even though this study was primarily on human traffi cking and prostitution among Edo women and girls of Edo state in Nigeria, human traffi cking, however, is a widespread, visible phenomenon in the world today. It is a global problem. A report from United Nations Offi ce on Drug and Crime in 2014 says that human traffi cking involves over three million people in the world, bringing their slaveholders an annual profi t of 32 billion dollars. According to the same report, there is no place in the world where children, women, and men are safe from human traffi cking. In the background, the stark reality of poverty, unemployment, social marginalization, political crises, wars, interethnic confl icts, and the militarization of entire territories has increased the massive displacements of the population, fuelling the illegal sex trade linked to them. Many youngsters who desire to improve their living conditions and those of their families fl eeing their homes often become prey to criminal organizations who take advantage of them, exploit them, and dehumanize them. Little do they know when they are leaving their homes to go to overseas, what is waiting for them is often something altogether diff erent, namely intimidation, blackmail, violence, nightmare, and slavery that strip them of all dignity and respect. To make matters worse, most of the victims and their families not only lose credibility but are also ostracized by their local communities when what happened comes to light. Th erefore, the victims of this painful chain are not only young girls and boys but also families. Unfortunately, some parents, especially mothers, have also been perpetrators of this deplorable crime. Th ey push their daughters into the arms of their torturers, lulled by the dream of a brighter future. To stop and to prevent the reoccurence of this criminal network of complicity, which has been more or less voluntary, conscious and unconscious, a joint commitment by all governments, organizations, local communities, and individuals is necessary. Everyone needs to remember and never forget that every human being, every person has been created and procreated in the image and likeness of God and is a subject of essential rights, which should never be violated but rather should be respected and upheld by everyone in every time and place.

How to Vacation and Travel Safely..and Come Back Alive begins with the real life story of how author Earnest Hart, Jr. was held captive in Thailand while visiting for a series of kickboxing matches. Hart felt vulnerable in this foreign land where the government was run by a military that imposed their will upon the foreign contestants with Uzis and intimidation. Forced to realize that the world we live in is as dangerous outside of the ring as it is inside, Hart continued his martial arts training and added to his knowledge by studying all available material related to security. I didnt get a bit of sleep that night. I sat up in my bed with my back to the wall, looking at the door and hoping no one would come through it. I started to wonder if I was ever going to get back to the U. S. alive. No one outside of Thailand really knew where I was. The most important questions I went over many times during that night were, How could I have prevented this from happening, and how do I get out of this situation? Since 9/11, personal safety has never been more paramount. Harts book is an in-depth look at the realities of traveling in the new millennium and managing to stay safe in spite of the many obstacles that may arise. Focusing on important principles for individuals and families to help prepare themselves for real life encounters, the author lays out a detailed yet easy to understand plan for the readers to follow and make a part of their traveling and everyday routines. Earnest Hart, Jr. is a world-class martial arts champion, physical fitness trainer, actor and seminar specialist. He regularly presents workshops and lectures, captivating his audiences with details of his life experiences and providing them with straight talk about their personal safety.

Gypsy And Traveller Girls

This book presents the untold stories of Gypsy and Traveller girls living in Scotland. Drawing on accounts of the girls’ lives and offering space for their voices to be heard, the author addresses contemporary and traditional stereotypes and racialised misconceptions of Gypsies and Travellers. Marcus explores how the stubborn persistence of these negative views appears to contribute to policies and practices of neglect, inertia or intervention that often aim to ‘civilise’ and further assimilate these communities into the mainstream settled population. It is against this backdrop that the book exposes the girls’ racialised and gendered experiences, which impact on their struggles as young people to realise their potential and future prospects. Their narratives reveal the strengths of a distinct community, and the complexity of their silence and agency within the patriarchal structures that pervade the private spaces of home and the public spaces of education. This study also invites the reader to reflect on how the experiences of Gypsy and Traveller girls compares with young women from other social backgrounds, and questions if there is more that binds us than divides us as women in the modern world. Gypsy and Traveller Girls will be of interest to students and scholars across a range of disciplines, including sociology, education, gender studies and social policy.

The travels recounted here are my experiences and outlook, at the end of the 20th Century. On these particular trips, I took notes and wrote them up when I got home. I have relived these years through the notes and writing of this memoir. It makes me realize how fortunate I have been to visit these countries. On these trips, I felt a continual excitement at what we were seeing and doing, and this was true in spite of physical fatigue. In Greece, I enjoyed our trek up the Acropolis and the view of Athens on that clear and sunny day was beautiful. The Parthenon was graceful even as the workmen were repairing cracks and weathered places in preparation for the upcoming summer Olympics. It was stimulating to be on a cruise with Karen Armstrong in Greece. She gave lectures about the monotheistic religions as we visited a number of sacred sites. Cape Town, South Africa, is a resort city for Europeans where history had been made when apartheid no longer governed a primarily black nation. The changes in law and the culture had been made only a few years before the Parliament of the World's Religions held its convocation there. Former President Nelson Mandela addressed us. Perhaps the greatest treat for me was the visit to the Soviet Union in 1989 just two months before the Berlin wall came down and the world rejoiced in the televised performance of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony conducted by Leonard Bernstein. I enjoyed our visit to Spain and Morocco where we learned from Harvey Cox about the history of "convivencia" that describes the three monotheist religions as they found ways to live together in Spain. My last trip was with Janet Moore and her tour, Distant Horizons, to Jordan where we learned how educated and capable women live and work in that Muslim country.
