Human Trafficking If your child is kidnapped and sold as a human slave the USA government does not guarantee your kid to be found by them just think of how that would make you feel towards them. Human trafficking is a global phenomenon that affects many peoples life. Not only does it affect them while they are going through it but it will affect them in everyday life for as long as they live. So just imagine how many children of other people's families are affected by this phenomenon. Human trafficking is a number of different things such as being sex slaves, child soldiers, or just out right slaves.There are many laws that try and prevent human trafficking however these laws are not enough to eliminate it.
This all proves that the Italian culture is defined by their strong values. The unity of their values is what makes them so strong. It all starts with that first commitment and not one could exist fully without the others. If it means having a dozen people over for Sunday lunch, inviting a stranger over for a meal every chance possible, or taking a two hour lunch break to spend time with friends and family, I think that Italians have the right idea. I believe that Americans use to have some of these same values and maybe some still do, but they are not always prioritized correctly.
To understand Italy 's culture readers, need to be aware of the climate and geographical information about Italy. The climate of Italy is Mediterranean, and this means Italy has a considerably warm and mild winter while summers are warm and dry. Although this is true for most the country, in the northern parts, it can reach freezing temperatures. This is a result of the Alps Mountains, which is in the north quarter of Italy (Harness, 2018). Mountains and volcanoes cover approximately 40% of Italy.
Sex work indicate that individual take their decisions to employ in sexual businesses and trafficking for sexual exploitation take place when a person is forces to have sex against their will. There are arguments that rise over whether decriminalising sex work increases human trafficking or not. In most countries sex work is still regarded as a criminal offense like in South Africa. The argument that rises for the decriminalisation of sex work is that in countries where sex work is decriminalized they experience the number of reported occurrence of human trafficking. This incident shows the impact of decriminalized sex work increases the maximum growth of illegal industries in the world.
On television Italian Americans are all too often portrayed as mobsters, thugs and peasants who only eat spaghetti. While Italian Americans have made great strides in U.S. society, their characterization in popular culture remains stereotypical and troublesome in some viewer’s eyes. Shows like “Good fellas, casino, Donnie Brasco, The God Father, and the Sopranos” don’t help our cause. I’m not saying that everyone views Italians this way but when it comes to television this is how we are portrayed. Television plays a powerful role in the lives of citizens throughout the world.
Citizens of Italy are unified when their national soccer team competes in tournaments that occur every four years, such as the World Cup or the European Championship. When the national team has won a game, cheerful Italians flood the streets in celebration, but when there is a loss the nation’s people become upset and begin to criticize the coaches and players. However, the majority of the time, Italian citizens along with other soccer fans around the world, are more involved with the club competitions that run from August until May. Club rivalry games are taking very seriously with crowds of fans waving huge banners and organizing chants against the other team (“Calcio: The Sport That's Italy's Heart and Soul”). Although Italy does not have the variety of popular sports as the United States does, the Italians all come together to share their love for their favorite sport.
According to the article, human traffickers sold both boys and girls for huge profits. They accumulated $33,000 per week off of the suffering of children (Taylor). In other words, children are profitable and are therefore being kidnapped by adults to be sold for profit. For instance, Annika happens to be one of the victims who was lured by older people and experienced child rape. She was impregnated at the age of 17.
Many of them have only attended school for one year or have graduated college and are unable to find employment (41). The economy does not supply adequate learning facilities or a stable environment for expecting women, single mothers, or abandoned children and pushes them to the sex industry in order to earn money and protection. Younger woman tend to travel abroad in the sex industry in the hopes of a better life in a different country. When the victims are asked why they are reluctant to leave the sex industry they answer with “the wish to survive”, “to be independent from their families”, or the need “to help the family” (41). With many children being born into poverty everyday, prostitution is viewed more as a positive lifestyle for all rather than something detrimental to their lives, it becomes more widely accepted.
Italian culture is a very close society. I am not a member of this culture, but this is one thing that I have noticed. I found that through the research I have done so far about Italian culture. Being a very close society makes this automatically puts certain things at the top of the list for values. According to the Kwintessential website, “family is the center of social culture” (Kwintessential.co.uk).
In many cases, the girls or women who become sex workers do not decide to do so by their free will. Furthermore, in some cases the people who enter such a profession are desperate and lack prosperous career opportunities, and in the worse cases become slaves and are forced to be prostitutes. Even though we currently live in the twenty-first century, slavery (both relating to prostitution and other forms) is still
