Human Trafficking - A new tool to assist campaigners.
I'm involved with a new project that aims to assist individuals and organisations trying to combat human trafficking. The Human Trafficking Awareness Index is a collaboration with LexisNexis UK - www.lexisnexis.co.uk - a leading provider of content and technology solutions. Using a licensed collection of almost 6,000 of the most influential news sources from more than 120 countries, the HTA Index highlights emerging trends and patterns of awareness within and across national borders. Activists working to combat human trafficking can use this information to highlight and raise awareness to inform their efforts and gain greater understanding of the media.
The HTA Index report number 2 has just been published and can be read in full if you click on the link below. The report shows that the UK media reported widely on a major criminal trial and how the American media debated a controversial website called Backpage.com which has some 70 per cent of the market for prostitution advertisements.
Thanks for your time.
