Human Trafficking as a Contemporary and an Ethical Challenge

  • Slavery or what many today generally refer to as human trafficking is one of the existential problems of man that have perdured across the centuries partly because it is highly a complex phenomenon that is international, national and local and secondly because of the huge economic gains associated with it. However, it is an economic enterprise devoid of ethics and morality affecting the most vulnerable in our societies and turning them into mere objects of labour and commercialisation. This egregious human enterprise is one of the most glaring signs of ethical and moral paralyses of our time. This paper therefore makes an in-depth and an objective exposition as well as analysis of this callous and monstrous evil that has robbed human beings of their rights, freedom and dignity for many centuries. It challenges the structures that nurture and sustain this obnoxious and existential evil in our societies and also brings to the consciousness of everybody the gospel message of Jesus Christ that has redeemed the entire humanity and set them free from the bondage of slavery to live as children of God with rights and dignity. More so, this paper also highlights the various forms this evil of slavery has taken in different epochs, tracing its history and causes and at the same time drawing moral and ethical implications of the phenomenon based on the ethical assessment and examination of this nefarious evil both in the past and present eras. Finally, this paper suggests concrete steps that should be taken in order to adequately and significantly reduce and if possible prevent the further proliferation and perpetuation of the evil in the world.
