Human Trafficking

According to some estimates, there are at least 10 times as many girls now trafficked into brothels annually as African slaves were transported to the New World in the peak years of the trans-Atlantic slave trade. More children, women and men are held in slavery right now than over the course of the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade. Human trafficking is the third largest international criminal industry in the world after illegal drug and arms trafficking, and it is the fastest growing. This course examines the domestic and international dynamics of human trafficking from a variety of disciplinary and practitioner perspectives. Assignments allow students to practice evaluating anti-trafficking policy on both scientific and ethical grounds and making persuasive arguments on the basis of that analysis.
