Human trafficking is modern-day slave trading. In fact, the slave trade today is more global and greater in sheer numbers than the slave trade in Africa during the 1700's and 1800's. Traffickers use violence, coercion and deception to take people away from their homes and families. Whether trafficked within or between countries, people are used as domestics, prostitutes, manual laborers, factory workers, soldiers and sex slaves. This course will provide the student with an overview of global, domestic, and local human trafficking. We will examine causes, human costs, means of reducing the problem, and ways to personally impact this world-wide disgrace and disregard for human dignity.
