Check Out This Site

POLS 51 BLOG is developing into a really compelling site.  Give it a visit. You won’t be sorry. Given the focus of the blog, you won’t feel good, but it will be worth the visit.

Human Trafficking: humantrafficking.org « POLS 51 BLOG

humantrafficking.org is a website that brings awareness to the issue of human trafficking. Its purpose is to bring together groups in East Asia and the Pacific to help combat human trafficking. Specifically, it hopes to bring together these groups so that they can learn from one another and perhaps put forth a joint effort in stopping this distasteful trade. The has country-specific information such as national laws and action plans and contact information on useful governmental agencies. It also has a description of NGO activities in different countries and their contact information.

The United States specific page has a bunch of useful and informative links. They give links to the US Department of State Trafficking in Persons Report for the year of 2006 (which is EXTREMELY long). It also has links to various Agencies, Laws and Action Plans / Initiatives. It’s actually a really great site with a bunch of different links –many of which I have yet to explore. I think the best thing about it (aside from the information) is the way it’s organized. It’s really intuitive and easy to navigate which is always, ALWAYS a good thing. I’ve found that the majority of the links are current and it seems like the site is updated frequently. It even puts out a newsletter that one can subscribe to get the most up to date information.

Hope you make good use of this site. 🙂
