The Human Trafficking Cycle: Sinai and Beyond
Authors: Mirjam van Reisen, Meron Estefanos & Conny Rijken

This study looks at what happens to people who are captured, extorted and tortured in the Sinai. Treated as commodities, sold and resold – these people are trafficked. The vocabulary of ‘warehouses’ and ‘auctions’ and the negotiation of the ‘price’ of the hostages is reminiscent of the age of slavery, when the value of people was determined by their market price.

The Netherlands slacking behind in development

scorecard2012twitterThe Netherlands scores poorly when it comes to development, suggests the 'European Foreign Policy Scorecard' of 2012. The European Foreign Policy Scorecard assesses the performance of the 27 European member states and EU institutions on 80 areas from 2010, around the following core themes: (relationship to) China, Russia, the United States, wider Europe [European countries not yet Member States, ed), Middle East and North Africa and multilateral issues.

EEPA Director and Chair of International Social Responsibility, prof. Mirjam van Reisen said that this is not about the Netherlands doing badly but focuding on other priorities:

“The Netherlands can make a case for the perspective of the poorest countries in the European Union, so not only the strongest emerging countries need to be listened to. (Subsequently, we wouldn't have to compete ...) We do not have to compete directly with countries like Germany and England in development cooperation, but we (would) stand for something new that also has much to offer in terms of economic cooperation, access to raw materials and markets.”
