The Human Trafficking Project and Human Trafficking Students

The Human Trafficking Project (HTP) and Human Trafficking Students (HTS) are partnering to help increase student engagement in raising awareness of modern slavery by jointly publishing the HTS Series as regular contributions on the HTP site. Moving beyond the horror of the story of modern slaves, the HTS Series publishes critical engagement pieces that emanate first and foremost from student interest.

The Series is peer reviewed in a way that supports new writers, posts high quality submissions, and enables the creation of a disciplined and diverse community-of-practice. Posts will range from creative writing and poetry to policy reviews and quantitative assessments.

HTS exists to advocate for further academic take-up of the topics of modern slavery and human trafficking. We also believe that students are and will be playing a central role in bringing these topics to light. To that end, we work hard and engage our network to support students in conceiving of, developing, editing and sharing their blog posts.

The first HTS piece will be published on 8/18/2010.

  1. The Dayton Human Trafficking Accords
    WE THE PEOPLE can end human trafficking and slavery, but only if we solemnly commit ourselves to that common purpose.
    We must confront the global scourge of trafficking and slavery beginning in our own local communities.
    We as individuals and all institutions of society have a moral responsibility to end trafficking and free slaves from their captivity.
    WE undertake a solemn commitment, beginning now, to end the scourge of trafficking and slavery
    And to take immediate action in our communities to
    Stir society’s conscience to action against trafficking and slavery
    Rescue and restore victims of trafficking and slavery
    Identify and punish traffickers and slavers
    Promote legislation and public policies to eradicate trafficking and slavery
    Address the social, cultural and economic causes of trafficking and slavery
    So that
    We will end human trafficking in our Lifetime.
