Human Trafficking: A Contemporary Form of Slavery

Professor Susan Tiefenbrun

Human and sex trafficking are serious international crimes. Sex trafficking involves the transporting of women and children across borders in order to force them with violence to engage in prostitution. These women and children are not paid for their sex work because they are forced to pay back a debt that they never wanted to incur. This presentation will examine the causes, effects, laws governing, and possible solutions of sex trafficking.

Instructor: Susan Tiefenbrun teaches international law at Thomas Jefferson School of Law, where she is Director of the Center for Global Legal Studies. She has a JD degree from NYU School of Law and a PhD from Columbia University. She has written extensively on human trafficking as a form of contemporary slavery.
