GCAlthough human trafficking occurs all over the world, the exacerbating factors vary by region and country. This course will offer students an opportunity to identify and compare the causes of human trafficking in the United States and another country. Students will work with students from a partner university in an international location to better understand human trafficking in that location and how solutions to this global challenge will vary based on location. Watch this short video clip to learn more!
