Drugs are a giant illegal industry in Southeast Asia which lead to thousands if not millions deaths annually. The reason why this black market is so hard to control is that narco-barons, drug cartels and terrorist organisations who all use drugs to their profit are based in states with very little or no way of enforcing the law. The states of both Golden Crescent and Golden Triangle are poor by global standards and some of them even in a state of civil unrest or even civil war. Under such conditions crime usually prospers and since many citizens in extreme poverty have no other way of life they offer themselves as workers for the drug production. The question therefore is not only how to stop the drug production but also how to root it out by providing an alternate and better way of life for those, who are entangled in this criminal activity. Another question is how to bring to justice those responsible for the illicit drug trade and production and make sure they are punished sufficiently. The UN must advance carefully as the drugs have often proven to find a way to show up in the same place again after they were thought to have been eradicated.
Prostitution is a wide-spread issue in Asia especially since poverty is still a problem in the region. Many women are forced to prostitution by their financial situation and many more by abduction or possibly even drug addiction. Moreover child prostitution has become a huge problem as abducting girls and selling them into marriages in another country is a well-paying business for many criminals. In some countries even genital transplantation (from male to female genitals and vice-versa) has become a trend for prostitutes who often do not conduct such transplantation on their free will. For that matter the international society must act and protect the men, women and children in Asia who are very often forced by various factors to such an undignified way of life. The UN must determine how to protect the citizens from abductions, drugs and other situations which may force them to sell their own freedom and body, a conduct which is prohibited by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
