Subject outline

Human trafficking is a complex problem that requires an understanding of many different areas of law and policy, including migration, labour law, transnational criminal law, and international human rights. Until 2000, the term "trafficking" was not even defined in international law, although it was used in many treaties and international instruments. With the adoption of the UN Trafficking Protocol in 2000, the international community theoretically agreed upon a definition but debates continue on how that definition should be applied in different contexts. This course introduces students to the history of trafficking and the existing legal framework, drawing upon international law, regional agreements, and selected examples from domestic law.
