SOAN 307: Human Trafficking

For Prof. Elizabeth Trudeau - Spring 2023

Government, Intergovernmental, and Nonprofit Country Reports

Nonprofits and government agencies concerned about human trafficking put out reports often with overviews for every country. These can be a great place to start, to discover the basic framework of what is happening in a country, the most relevant laws and policies, the most recent developments, and important context that shapes how trafficking occurs and is resisted in each place. These details can be used to do further research, especially when seeking keywords to use.
