Call For Proposals - Research on Male Victims of Human Trafficking: 
  The U.S. Department of State, Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking 
in Persons (G/TIP) seeks practical and applicable research on male 
victims of human trafficking. Although women and children suffer 
disproportionately from the crime of human trafficking, a significant 
number of males fall victim to traffickers each year. Research on human 
trafficking has often overlooked these victims, and G/TIP therefore 
seeks proposals that will shed light on this aspect of human 
trafficking. In particular, G/TIP is interested in research that 
examines and analyzes forms or aspects of human trafficking that affect 
male victims and that are lesser-known or have received insufficient 
attention from government or NGO anti-trafficking efforts. Such research 
may be qualitative or quantitative; global, regional, national, or 
local; but it should have direct and obvious practical application to 
anti-trafficking policy and practice. Proposals also should make clear 
that the applicant understands the difference between smuggling and 
trafficking, and between merely exploitative labor situations and 
trafficking for forced labor. Applications are due by August 16, 2006.

Child Marriage Advocacy Toolkit, (2006) International Center for 
Research on Women:  Get the Facts about Child Marriage:  Child marriage 
is prevalent in many developing countries, putting girls at risk for 
serious economic, health and educational problems. Girls who marry young 
are more likely to live in poverty, experience violence at home and much 
less likely to continue attending school. For more information visit:
