ISRAEL: Human rights abuses of women trafficked from countries
of the former Soviet Union into Israel’s sex industry

Subject

Sex Trade

Description

Every year hundreds of women are trafficked from countries of the former Soviet Union (FSU) for the purpose of working in Israel’s sex industry. Many of these women are subjected to human rights abuses in Israel, such as violent assaults, enslavement and other restrictions on their liberty at the hands of traffickers, pimps or others involved in Israel’s sex industry. The Israeli government has failed to take adequate measures to prevent, investigate, prosecute and punish human rights abuses committed against trafficked women in the context of trafficking. In addition, their plight is compounded by the absence of any asylum adjudication procedure in Israel despite its ratification of the 1951 Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. This in turn makes trafficked women vulnerable to the possibility of being forcibly returned to countries where they risk being subjected to human rights abuses.
