Human Trafficking is one of the fastest growing human rights violations in the world today. Around the globe and in your backyard there are anywhere between 12-27 million people forced to harvest crops, sell sex, make clothes, and work in other inhumane situations without pay. Even though slavery has existed for centuries, today’s response to human trafficking and modern slavery is plagued with term confusion, unreliable data, and lack of inter-organizational communication.
The Human Trafficking Clinic at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies was started in 2008 to address the problem through professional research, writing, and educational outreach on human trafficking forced labor, and modern slavery. We aim to provide research that improves inter-organizational cooperation and accountability, influences policy, and raises awareness in combating human trafficking and modern slavery.
We work closely with a number of international and local anti-human trafficking, human rights, and community organizations:
- Free the Slaves
- European Roma Rights Centre
- The 1010 Project
