Abstract

The trafficking of people across borders for the purpose of exploitation is a growing human rights concern. This project seeks to uncover the factors that encourage and reinforce the existence of human trafficking today, specifically in the areas of sexual exploitation and forced labour. This research project utilizes case studies and other academic secondary sources to determine the possible factors of human trafficking. An ethnographic content analysis is used to analyze all data. The analysis reveals that globalization, the business of human trafficking, corruption, and culture contribute to human trafficking. In order to stop human trafficking, the author suggests that the current conduct of economic globalization and the hearts and minds of people need to change.
