Why are some nations more prone to trafficking than others? Whose responsibility is it to prevent transnational trafficking? How does globalization both help and harm populations that are more prone to trafficking? Are our lifestyle choices here enabling or supporting traffickers in some remote corner of the world? This class introduces students to modern research on a very old problem: the forced movement of people for the benefit of others. We will spend most of our time in discussion, developing a shared understanding of this phenomenon. Students will be empowered to pursue this as a topic of focused research from a perspective of their choosing.
