IOM Director General Calls for End to Sexual Violence in Conflict at London Summit
United Kingdom - The international community has taken too long to recognize how vulnerable women, girls and children are to gender-based violence in crisis situations, according to IOM Director General William Lacy Swing,

Speaking at the “End Sexual Violence in Conflict: London 2014” global summit yesterday (12/6), he called for international action to ensure that perpetrators never hold positions of power that allow them to commit sexual violence against women. He also called for the creation of a system to compensate victims.

The summit, which is co-chaired by UK Foreign Secretary William Hague and UN Special Envoy Angelina Jolie, is the largest meeting ever held to discuss the role of rape in war and how to stop it. The aim is to create an irreversible momentum against sexual violence in conflict and to find practical ways to impact the reality on the ground.

Migrant Boat Arrivals in Italy Top 50,000: IOM Calls for Action
Italy - IOM Director General William Lacy Swing today called for urgent international action and intensified cooperation following the arrival of over 5,470 migrants by boat in Sicily over the weekend. Over 50,000 migrants and asylum seekers have now reached Italy from North Africa in 2014.

While Operation Mare Nostrum – carried out since last October by the Italian Government – has saved thousands of lives, deaths at sea are continuing.  Last month, an unknown number of migrants died and 17 bodies were recovered after a shipwreck on May 13th.

Chad Human Trafficking Challenge: IOM Report
 Chad -IOM Chad has launched a major qualitative study on human trafficking in Chad, as part of a two-year US State Department-funded project:  “Strengthening Chad’s Capacity to Prevent and Combat Trafficking in Persons”.

The report concludes that trafficking in persons in Chad takes many forms, mostly affecting women and children. The trafficking problem is primarily internal but also international.  Internal trafficking frequently involves parents entrusting children to relatives or intermediaries in return for promises of education, apprenticeship, goods, or money.

Selling or bartering children into involuntary domestic servitude or herding is used as a means of survival by families seeking to reduce the number of children to take care of. Child victims of trafficking are primarily subjected to forced labor as cattle herders, domestic servants, street vendors, or beggars.
