Imperfect Data No Excuse for Inaction

Thursday, July 07, 2011

This morning I pointed to an Asia Foundation study highlighting the difficulty of gaining a completely accurate picture of the problem of human trafficking in Cambodia. This afternoon I was alerted to Maggie Neilson's piece at the Huffington Post where she responds to recent news coverage questioning the extent of child trafficking with the (not-so?) subtle implication that we shouldn't be that concerned about it. In this article Neilson nails it: "For those of us who work on these issues, we don't do so once a problem gets to a certain size. We do it because it's the right thing to do." 

Imperfect data is no excuse for inaction.
