6th CCARHT Summer Symposium 2021: ‘The Body Trafficked’ – Day 2
Welcome to your place around the virtual table at the CCARHT 2021 Summer Symposium – here in Cambridge we are getting ready for an intense three days where we shall be exploring with participants from across the world, the challenges posed by focussing on the various vulnerabilities of ‘the Body Trafficked’.
During the course of these challenging three days we shall be listening to voices of survivors, researchers, theoreticians, policy makers, psychologists, advocates for change and NGO front line responders, anxious to thread together the disparate themes unleashed by this explicit focus on the body within trafficking.
Day two – the trafficking in organs/ gametes and persons for organ harvesting
Trafficking in Persons (TIP) for organ removal is a serious crime which demeans human dignity and the value of human life stated the GLO.ACT team in Vienna – sponsored by 12 million Euro – to address this egregious exploitation of vulnerable persons for the financial gain of the traffickers. The number of persons reported to be trafficked for the purpose of organ removal, though small in terms of actual cases, is clearly growing, and Covid 19 conditions, will undoubtedly put more pressure on the market for acquisition – due to stressed hospital resources, and delay in non-Covid related interventions. According to UNODC’s 2020 Global Report on TIP North Africa, followed by the Middle East, has the highest share of detections of victims trafficked for the purpose of organ removal.
