The Filipino Times
DUBAI: Today, human trafficking victims no longer have to fear for their lives and for their security as both the governments of the UAE and the Philippines intensify campaigns to combat the crime in all its forms—from illegal recruitment to exploitation. All they have to do is reach out to the authorities and report their case. Help will promptly be on its way.

Trafficking in persons is a complex and serious crime. The short- and long-term physical and emotional implications can be debilitating and life altering for the victims. The MICIC Initiative aims to help save lives and protect the rights and dignity of migrants. While it is well recognized that trafficking in persons takes place in times of peace, it can equally take place in times of crisis. Migrants are abused, exploited, and lose their lives at the hands of human traffickers in times of armed conflict or natural disaster. This dimension, however, is largely overlooked by governmental and non-governmental actors alike and merits specific attention.
