As one of the most profitable crimes and one that knows no borders; human trafficking is also one of the most heinous human rights violations. This (gradulate level) course will offer a historical overview of the trafficking in persons. Attention will also be given to a wide-range of related topics and issues ranging from methodological research issues related to the study of human trafficking, the range and scope of criminal justice response mechanisms, the evolutive nature of human trafficking, various international response mechanisms and models, as well as a look at futures issues as they pertain to more effectivewly and efficiently responding to human trafficking. Although the course will have a European focus, where appropriate, an internation perspective will be included to enhance a more global understanding of the crime.
