This course will examine the various typologies of human trafficking - sexual exploitation, bonded labor, and forced labor - which has been described as the fastest growing business enterprise in the world. It will examine the commonalities in recruitment, transit, and exploitation of the three issues as well as examine patterns and trends in countries of origin, transit, and destination. It will explore the business model upon which these types of exploitation exist with the purpose of understanding vulnerabilities for effective intervention. It will also examine the Palermo Protocol at age 10 and the U.N. Global Initiative to Fight International Human Trafficking. National strategies and best practices, both in the U.S. and elsewhere, will be examined for effectiveness for designing policy interventions. This course will be particularly relevant for students who may work in situations where humanitarian protections are necessary for the most vulnerable populations - refugee camps, conflict and post-conflict settings, natural disasters, and settings of extreme poverty.
