This course addresses the phenomena of human trafficking and other contemporary forms of slavery and forced labour. It will address the historical context of these phenomena, causes that contribute to their prevalence, efforts to eradicate these practices, and the problematic nature of the term “human trafficking”, especially how it is often used in ways that conflate consensual and non-consensual forms of labour and human migration that skirt or violate the law.
