The Global Slavery Index 2016

The Global Slavery Index 2016

The Walk Free Foundation’s 2016 Global Slavery Index (GSI), using data from 167 nationally representative surveys conducted by Gallup, estimated that 45.8 million people in the world were in some form of modern slavery. Fifty-eight percent of those who are in slavery live in India, China, Pakistan, Bangladesh, and Uzbekistan. Civil and political protections, social health and economic rights, personal security and refugee populations and conflict are four complex dimensions that impact the vulnerability of people to modern slavery. This report conducted an assessment of government responses of 161 countries. Of these governments: 124 have criminalized human trafficking; 96 have National Action Plans; and 150 provide services to victims of modern slavery.

A Agenda Sobre Mulheres, Paz e Segurança no Contexto Latino-Americano

According to this publication, Latin American governments are lagging behind the rest of the world with the United Nations’ Security Council’s Agenda on Women, Peace and Security. The region has the highest homicide and feminicide rates in the world. Economic and gender inequality; organized crime; land disputes; and systemic violence are some of the factors that adds to the victimization in the region. The authors argue that national and regional laws will be insufficient in solving this issue; call for gender issues to be included in security agendas; and propose additional methods to fill the gap.

"Line up, Live up" Trainer manual: Life skills training through sport to prevent crime, violence and drug use
This manual describes ten seminars oriented to provide at-risk youth with the knowledge needed to improve their life skills, perceptions of life as also those of society. It profits from the capacity that sports have to create a sense of support, belonging and loyalty which in turn encourage participants to collaborate, understand and tolerate individuals from different backgrounds. By changing mentalities through education, “Line up, Live up” builds on previous UN experiences in developing and implementing an evidence-based crime, violence and drug use prevention program. The seminars are designed to be accessible and easy to put into place as there’s no need for complex or expensive equipment. It is also desirable to include youth from all genders, sexual orientations, socio-economical backgrounds and cultures in order to create from the beginning an atmosphere of tolerance and empathy.
