In an exciting new venture The Medaille Trust has partnered with Redemptorist Publishing to produce a book entitled Human Trafficking & Modern Slavery: Introducing the issue and Recognising the Signs, written by Mike Emberson. (ISBN:9780852314852).
The book describes the horror of modern day slavery and human trafficking in the UK. Each year, thousands of victims are brought into the country to be exploited in brothels, on farms and in private homes. This worldwide trade is estimated to enslave millions of people and earn, the perpetrators of the crime, billions of pounds. This book details the part the UK plays in this vile trade. Illustrated by real-life case studies and informed by the authors’ many years of work in this field, the shocking details of this human rights abuse are laid bare.
It is hoped that the reader will gain many benefits from a study of the book, but especially the following:
- Develop a greater understanding of the problem and issues surrounding Human Trafficking.
- Know what is being done to counter Human Trafficking.
- Know what they can do to assist in the work to combat Human Trafficking..
