Human Trafficking: A Deep Dive into Modern Slavery

University Commons

Human Trafficking can be described as one of the most complex and intricate crimes that exists in the global community. It is rife with human rights violations and can be understood to mean modern slavery. More importantly, it is incredibly prevalent in every country and in every form imaginable. This thesis attempts to offer a consolidation of what human trafficking is along with how it has become such an impenetrable force and how it is conducted all over the world. It also examines who are the actors at the different levels and where specific types of trafficking occur. It also examines the motivations behind the industry and how it has woven its way into modern society. Lastly, the paper visits current solutions and offers prescriptions to hopefully improve upon how the industry is combatted. This paper aims to define, examine and illustrate the complex issue of human trafficking in order to bring it further into the public eye. Most importantly, this thesis aims to educate the public on this issue and hopefully motivate them to do something to change the horrific realities of it.
