The unfairness that is happening in Mindanao is graft and corruption, human rights abuse, land conflicts and many more. According to Encyclopedia of Genocide and Crimes against Humanity (2005) pointed out that “abuses perpetrated against indigenous peoples represent perhaps the largest number of historical injustices” (par.4). From this, it is apparent that historical injustices in Mindanao were mostly derived from discrimination of a certain group of people. The same also happened in Mindanao, wherein there was a conflict of interest of different parties involved in the negotiation of BBL. The existence of the conflict of interest came from the movement for freedom of the Moros (Quevedo, n.d.).
“Noy Thrupkaew: Human Trafficking is all Around You: This is how it Works” and “Slavery in the fields” both have a common theme. Both of these stories make the claim that human trafficking is widespread across a spectrum of industries and that consumers are fueling the problem. However, this subject is far more complicated than one can see. The first piece brings attention to the gruesome circumstances of human trafficking victims. The second piece is very loose in what it interprets as human trafficking.

GLOBALIZATION AND CHALLENGES TO HUMAN RIGHTS IN INDIA Globalization has posed so many challenges in the way of human rights in all over world. India is also facing the challenges of globalization in terms of human rights violation. Due to liberalization, privatization and globalization the human rights of workers, women, children and tribal are under question.

Examples of these crimes are racial attacks, sexism, arson, homophobia, rape, murder, harassment and hate speech etc. Such misconduct is a direct infringement to numerous human rights listed in the South African Bill of Rights. Some of these human rights are namely the right to equality (article 1), the right to dignity (article 2), gender rights (article 8) and the rights of association, religion, language and culture (article 5). Under close scrutiny, with hate crime issues still lingering within society, South Africa’s legal system and ‘rainbow nation’ under new democratic governance are put on the spot. Hate crimes in Meadowlands (including neighbouring communities) are prejudice-driven by locals, for specific incidents, on foreign nationals for residing in a South African community to which they feel, ‘outsiders’ do not belong/fit.
They were given hope, but it only led them into deception and heartbreak. This term paper will show you the betrayal and deception by two powerful countries—Spain and America—who collaborated to colonize our country with a “battle” and a treaty.

Indonesia have so many difference and diverse among the people as I has described in the introduction above, this is the main reason for conflicts in Indonesia.
