Trafficking in persons (TIP), or human trafficking, is a regrettably widespread form of modern-day slavery. Traffickers often prey on individuals, predominantly women and children in certain countries, who are poor, frequently unemployed or underemployed, and who may lack access to social safety nets. Victims are often lured with false promises of good jobs and better lives, and then forced to work under brutal and inhuman conditions. It is difficult to accurately estimate the extent of victimization in this crime whose perpetrators go to great lengths to keep it hidden.

The purpose of this course is t provide the student with a comprehensive understanding of global human trafficking. In addition to an overview we will examine, causes, costs, political and other means of reducing the problem, and ways to personally impact this world-wide disgrace and disregard for human dignity.

Course content:

· Size and scope of the problem

· Industry profits and debt bondage

· Criminal Networks and corrupt guardians

· Trafficking laws and economic conditions that drive them

· Militarized rape and other patriarchal hostilities

· What must be done….

· Think globally and act locally
