Sociology of Human Trafficking

SOCIO 635 - Class Number: 13830


Sociology of Human Trafficking is a combined undergraduate and graduate section that explores a range of topics related to human trafficking, sex trade, and anti-trafficking institutions in the context of globalization. While the course mainly focuses on sex trafficking of women, other forms of slavery-like practices (e.g., forced labor, exploitation of children, domestic servitude, organ trafficking, and others) are analyzed. In this class, we will review relevant concepts and theories that can help us in explaining the causes of these social problems and discuss different solutions to the problem of human trafficking, as well as institutional and legislative frameworks used to prevent human trafficking. Finally, we will analyze multiple case studies, testimonies, reports, and expert statements to fully understand the complexity of the problem.
