Modern slavery and human trafficking are serious, often hidden, crimes that affect millions of men, women and children across the globe. There are an estimated 40 million people in slavery at any time according to the International Labour Organisation’s Global estimates 2017. Over 66% of all trafficking victims are estimated to be transported across at least one international border (UNODC). Airlines and airports are places used by traffickers and victims of trafficking.
Foremost, this course will give awareness about what modern slavery and human trafficking are and how it affects the aviation sector. Further, it will tell how to spot the signs and indicators of trafficking and how to report suspicious behaviour. This way, the course will assist with the identification of traffickers and victims, the methods for reporting concerning actions, and how to proceed for the protection of victims - aiming for an increase in the identification and protection of victims of trafficking and the prosecution of offenders.
Ultimately, the course will help compliance with ICAO Circular 352 (Guidelines for Cabin Crew on Identifying and Responding to Trafficking in Persons 2018), and ICAO Annex 9.
