    Mothers in Human Trafficking Networks: Robbed of their Rights

    This publication documents the systematic violation of women trafficking victims’ right to be mothers and have a family, a right so cherished in our societies that we take for granted that everyone will have access to it. The investigation further shows the discrimination faced by these women for their status as trafficking victims as well as stereotypes around what it means to be a “good mother,” in four European countries: Spain, France, Germany and Denmark.

    T-388/2009. Conscientious Objection and Abortion: a global perspective on the Colombian experience

    In decision T-388/09 the Colombian Constitutional Court ruled what constitutes a legitimate conscientious objection, as well as who can claim it, how, and when. 

    In this publication, the rules for conscientious objection set by the Colombian ruling are analyzed from a range of perspectives, including women and men who exercise different professions and play different roles in the field of sexual and reproductive rights and health and who live and work in different parts of the world where conscientious objection to abortion is currently a hotly debated issue, or will be in the near future (Latin America, Europe, Africa and the United States).

  • Trafficking of Nigerian Women and Girls: Slavery across Borders and Prejudices
    Trafficking of Nigerian Women and Girls: Slavery across Borders and Prejudices

    Since 2005 Women’s Link Worldwide has been investigating and documenting the situation of Nigerian women in both Morocco and Spain at their migration route. Women’s Link has focused especially on human rights violations they are subjected to, including trafficking and the procedures of deportation from detention centres for migrants in Spain (Centros de Internamiento de Extranjeros (CIE)). The Report, taking into account the social, political, economical and cultural context of Nigeria, examines the causes and motivations why so many Nigerian women and girls decide to leave home country and undertake journeys that often turns out a trafficking. The Report seeks to provide with essential knowledge on the issue in order to properly identify women and girls victims or potential victims of trafficking and subsequently help them in an adequate way that their fundamental rights were protected.
