Short abstract:

I propose that a panel be established as anthropological studies and interventions are the need of the hour when we are concentrating on the theme: Evolving Humanity and emerging world.

Long abstract:

Human trafficking is the greatest curse and problem of evolving humanity. One can find the "legal" definition in the United Nation's "protocol to prevent, suppress and punish trafficking in persons, especially women and children, supplementing the United Nation Convention against transnational organized crime", adopted in 2000 also called the "Palermo protocol". It is currently the "official" definition:" The recruitment, transportation, transfer, harboring or receipt of persons, by means of the threat or the use of force or other form of coercion, of abduction, of fraud of deception, of the abuse of power or of a position of vulnerability, or of the giving or receiving of payment or benefits to achieve the consent of a person having control over another person for the purpose of exploitation of the prostitution of others or other form of sexual exploitation, forced labour or services, slavery or practices similar to slavery, servitude or the removal of organs". I therefore, propose that that a panel be established as anthropological studies and interventions are the need of hours when we are concentrating on the theme: Evolving Humanity and emerging world. I fervently hope, that fellow anthropologists have many things to say and suggest in the form of a panel discussion/seasonal paper to save the humanity from this menace engulfing Evolving Humanity and Emerging world.
