Forced Migration, Human Trafficking and Child Soldiers: How ISIL is Exploiting the Conflict in the Middle East Video Playlist

Forced Migration, Human Trafficking and Child Soldiers: How ISIL is Exploiting the Conflict in the Middle East, hosted by the UN Programs of the Department of Inter-Orthodox, Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations of the Greek Orthodox Archdiocese (together with the World Council of Churches and The Lutheran World Federation), discusses Daesh’s (self-proclaimed Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant [ISIL]) exploitation of the Middle East’s current political and humanitarian instability for their own gain. This exploitation and its many consequences result in negative effects on sustainable development. The panel primarily addresses the effects of Daesh’s actions on the local populations, specifically in terms of forced migration, human trafficking, and child soldiers.
